Fuel scarcity persists in Ondo, Nigeria

Residents of Akure, the Ondo state capital on Saturday, groaned as the queuing at the filing stations for Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) persisted in the state, with many of the filling stations at the state capital and other cities not open for business.

Many of the fuel stations are under lock and key while the few ones who are selling the product were filled up with queues of vehicles causing traffic gridlock on the road.

Sunday Tribune correspondent noticed that most of the fuel stations selling fuel to the public were owned by independent marketers, while all the major marketers were not selling the product.

In GOMSAV at Oba Ile, where the PMS is being sold at N295, motorists were seen in a queue while the petrol station was blocked by Okada riders and vehicles.
