Washington has tried to leverage one of Iran’s weak links – its shortfall in domestic refinery capacity – by seeking to block imports of pump-ready fuel. This has caused some shortages. But OPEC giant Iran still brings in 80 percent of its revenue through exports of crude oil, which pushed above $86 a barrel on Friday.

“Sanctions have increased living costs, but won’t cripple Iran’s economy,” said Tehran-based political analyst Majid Deljoo. “Sanctions that do not include export of crude oil won’t have any serious effect.”
