Some of the motorists reported that they had been on queue for hours waiting to get petrol.
Mr Tunde Adewale, a trader at Balogun Market, said that he had spent three hours in the queue.
"Most of the filling stations selling in my area at Agbado are selling above the pump price so I won’t mind staying here for hours as long as I get the product.
"They are selling at N87 per litre here but the queue is slow but the management has assured us that they have enough products in stock," he said.
