Qatar, like other countries in the region, has "maintained social cohesion" by redistributing some of the proceeds from its sale of oil and natural gas to residents through generous public services and artificially low prices for water, electricity and petrol.
The typical Qatar household pays an average of 2.3 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh), even though that costs 4.2 cents to generate. That means the government covers US1.9 cents for every kWh consumed by residential users.
