The South African Petrol Retailers’ Association says they have received reports that several service stations are not receiving their fuel.
This follows nationwide strike action by truck drivers affiliated to the South African Transport and Allied Workers Union.
Sapra’s Peter Noke says fuel suppliers are finding ways to get fuel to the retailers. He says however that there is little retailers can do to ensure a constant supply.
