The Ministry of Petroleum Recourse Development taking stock of the current petrol crisis has decided to only issue petrol for vehicles.
According to the Secretary to the Ministry Upali Marasinghe a circular in this has already been issued.
He noted that in accordance with the circular fuel depots would be issued instructions to refrain from issuing fuel to jerry cans and various other fuel storage devices.
However, despite claims refuting a fuel crisis in the country, long queues could be witnessed in several parts of the island.
According to News24’s correspondents a majority of fuel stations have been closed down due to the unavailability of petrol.
Addressing a media briefing held yesterday Minister of Petroleum Resources Arjuna Ranatunga said that a ship carrying a consignment of fuel is due to make a port call tomorrow, following which the fuel crisis is expected to quell.
