I read this story in disbelief.
GDP/Capita of Afghanistan = 1310
GDP/Capita of the United States = 41399
$20 for toll road is equal to ~1.5% of GDP/capita of Afghanistan
1.5% of GDP/capita of US is ~$632.05
Can’t imagine anybody paying that much to use a road. Even for a monthly pass.
This means that an Afghan merchant will have to pay the American equivalent of about seven thousand dollars per year just to use the main highway.
