Fuel scarcity bites harder nationwide

16 November 2015, 16:04

Lagos - The ongoing fuel scarcity across the nation is taking a toll on motorists and business activities with long queues witnessed in almost all the petrol stations selling the products, Vanguard reports.

Motorists besieged the few petrol stations that are selling the product, spending between four and six hours on the queue in some cases.

The number of filling stations that had the product to sell was reducing daily, while the few ones that had petrol in stock were capitalising on the scarcity to make excessive profits at the expense of consumers.

At the NNPC mega station, Katampe, along the Abuja-Kaduna expressway, about 300 cars were on the queue struggling to buy the products.

A similar scenario was witnessed in almost all the petrol stations dispensing the product at the Central Business District.

At the NIPCO petrol station at Arab Road in Kubwa,  large number of vehicles were struggling to purchase the product, leading to a gridlock which made it difficult for other road users to ply the road.

In Gwarimpa, most of the petrol stations were shut, while the few that had the product were besieged by a large number of motorists.

Same situation played out in Utako, Jabi, Maitama, Dutse, Garki, Nyanya, Wuse, Asokoro and Airport Road among others.
