However, if you do the Maths at the current, ahem, parallel market exchange rates, you will discover that ZINARA tollgates are pretty affordable. At the current rate, as an example, $100 bond is no more than USD 1.

The $820 that is being paid by haulage trucks is no more than USD6. That is pretty affordable. There had previously been worries that the increase in ZINARA tollgate fees would force haulage trucks to use alternative routes, thus depriving the country of much needed revenue.
