Is anyone else noticing excessive air pollution all the time. Open a car window and immediately it smells like you are directly behind 10 busses.

Is this because everyone switched to cheaper gas?

No, it has nothing to do with the amount of octane in the gas.

To monitor the pollution levels in Kuwait you can use this link http://aqicn.org/city/kuwait/kuwait-city/us-embassy/

Any idea how accurate is that "monitor"? On a dusty day was showing 85 and on what was looking as a fine day was showing 105.

If you google weather on your phone, you can see the air quality in your current location. Most of the day its bad, at night its usually moderate. But yes, air quality is probably shit in Kuwait. A million cars all out at the same time and no greenery plus sand. I don't see any reason why Kuwait would have good air quality.

I don’t need a website to tell me I am inhaling shit.  My question is about why the pollution seems to have increased like crazy lately. (Or am I just crazy and my nose is more sensitive all of a sudden)

You should contact KISR (Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research). They have scientists and experts who will give you the proper answer you are seeking.

If you feel you're going crazy you should contact Kuwait Centre for Mental Health. They have medical professionals who give you a proper treatment.

Hope this helps.
