Saudi Arabia has popped up in the news on more than one occasion recently. The country is a powerhouse not just in the Middle-East, but in the world economy as well. With oil virtually pouring out of every crevice, Saudi Arabia is more than just a religious Islamic hot spot. Here are pictures and facts about Saudi Arabia that most people haven’t been exposed to.
Oil VS. Water
Saudi Arabia is glazed with oil and that’s why it is such a powerful player in the world. If you’d like to fill up your car or get a bottle of water to drink, don’t be taken aback if the gas station staff charge you more for the water, after all, oil is cheaper.
Women And Driving
Only recently did the Saudi government decide that women are allowed to drive, so recently that we’re talking about June 2018. Women are now pushing for other equal rights to play in their favor.
