Default Expo 2020 - what has gone up in price?

The Happy Gas man told me yesterday that the cost of a gas bottle has gone up to 145dh (from 125) due to the Expo.

Anything else gone up due to the event in six years time that none of us (apart from Blue Cat and BusyBee) will be here to see?

I shall be in dubai and dibby dabby tomorrow for a few days, for the first time in about six months. The price gouging should be readily apparent to me.

is there an Arabian Ranches tax on that or are you buying a tank's worth? We pay 20dh in Abu Dhabi (small blue one but lasts ages)

Gas? I don't understand this, why on earth would anyone trust half-wits in Dubai with gas.

It is completely beyond me.
