In the lead up to the June 30 rallies that preceded the overthrow of Egypt’s President Mohammed Morsi by the army the country was in the middle of a fuel crisis hitting petrol and electricity supplies.
But for now, both issues appear to be solved, and many people are asking how?
The Muslim Brotherhood says people who backed the coup deliberately caused shortages to encourage people onto the street to demonstrate against Morsi.
However, energy experts have told Al Jazeera that a temporary shortage of fuel became more serious when people started panic buying before June 30, and since then electricity use has dropped because people have been out protesting.
