LAHORE - The suspension of fuel supply at majority of city’s filling station on second day is putting in jeopardy the Petroleum Dealers Association’s claim of normalising the situation by Thursday (today).

The financial crisis of PSO is said to be the main reason behind the suspension of supply. Around 50 per cent filling stations remained closed on Wednesday while huge rush was seen at the petrol pumps where supply was normal.

The suspension caused severe problems for commuters as well as for public transport which due to already closure of gas supply did not get enough fuel. Huge rush was seen at the bus stops of urban transport.

“City stations on Wednesday received some 50 per cent supply from oil companies and we are hopeful that fuel would reach Lahore on Thursday,” said a representative of Petroleum Dealers Association.
