Petrol Scarcity Spreads To Lagos
Petrol scarcity which surfaced last week in Abuja, parts of the North and South South regions, have spread to Lagos metropolis.
Since last Sunday, queue of motorists in their vehicles have resurfaced in the metropolis.
The queue started getting longer on Monday, as several filling stations in the city stopped selling products, complaining of supply problems from major marketers and depots.
Chairman of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) at NNPC depot, Ore, Shina Amao, said there is an acute shortage of petrol at NNPC depots.
According to him, this is forcing marketers in the south west region to patronize private depots who are selling products at above the approved ex depot prices.
