Fuel shortage continues to bite
The South African Petroleum Industry Association (Sapia) says people who battle to find petrol should phone oil companies to find out where they will be making deliveries. Business Report quotes Sapia director Colin McClelland as saying oil companies are trying to keep petrol stations along the major routes supplied. He advised desperate city motorists to drive out to the nearest highway filling station. Meanwhile, government has announced a review of the country's fuel stocks as it accused oil companies of reneging on an agreement to keep 30 days' worth of supplies. Motorists pay between two and three cents a litre to compensate oil firms for the storage.
