LAHORE - The shortage of fuel was witnessed on Monday night, as majority of the filling stations in city refused the sale ahead of the announcement of hike in petroleum products by the govt at midnight. A survey showed that most of the stations in city halted the sale after 7 in the evening. As a result, motorists particularly the bikers were the worst affected as there was hardly any petrol. Due to the shortage, long queues of motorcyclists and motorists were witnessed at various fuel pumps in the city. We are much worried about the situation, said a motorcyclist, Mehmood, standing at fuel station on Mozang Road. He said that public has to face difficulties in getting petrol at the end of every month. He called on the government to address the issue, saying that motorists were forced to travel long distances without fuel. Petrol stations of almost all companies at Mozang Road, Wahdat Road, Ferozepur Road and the Mall were not selling petrol. However the PSO pumps were offering a little quantity where long queues were witnessed. Ahmed, manager of a fuel station, said the POL supply at the Pakistan State Oil (PSO) outlets was better. But the PSO alone cannot meet citys fuel requirements, he added. Another, Qaim Husain, waiting for his turn at a petrol pump, said a majority of the fuel stations in the metropolis were without POL products since the evening.
