What international event was the impetus to create the Mini?

The Mini may never have been built if it weren’t for the Suez Crisis in 1956. England found itself in the middle of rationing gasoline (Petrol) which allowed the average Brit to purchase only 6 to 10 gallons per month. They could no longer drive their Rolls or Bentleys, so Leonard Lord gave the go ahead to produce the Mini.
