What is the potential impact of retail petroleum price reforms in the UAE?

Report summary

In late July the UAE government announced plans to reform petroleum product retail prices, linking them to international market prices. Paying less in subsidies on petroleum products will help offset the fall in oil and gas related government income due to the decline in crude oil prices. However, it raises the question as to what will happen to domestic oil demand and whether other neighbouring countries will follow the UAE's reforms.
