Fuel scarcity hits Lagos metropolis

Fuel scarcity hit harder in Lagos today as more filling stations closed their pumps to motorists.

The few that sold petrol across the metropolis had long queues.

Investigations by our correspondent showed that the few stations that sold fuel restricted it to two or three pumps.

The scarcity may worsen today unless authorities have taken measures to close the demand-supply gap.

But there were no signs last night that the situation would not remain or worsen in the week ahead.

The increase has not been reflected officially on their pumps.

Findings by our correspondent also revealed that most of the filling stations that closed their gates to motorists took the action to hoard the commodity, following speculations of a possible price hike.
