Labour Minister Mildred Olifant says those involved in wage talks should find resolutions quickly.

She says prolonged strikes are not in the public interest.

The industrial action by workers in the petroleum industry has prevented fuel delivery trucks from leaving a number of depots in the country.

Meanwhile, at least 16 Engen service stations in Johannesburg have already run out of fuel.

Engen’s Tania Landsberg says supply trucks have been unable to leave fuel depots.

She says there have also been reports of intimidation in some areas.
