Fuel: Local supplies still alright

2009-04-14 00:00

Petrol stations in Pietermaritzburg have been having fuel delivered to them.

The owner of a station who advised drivers to keep their tanks full last week said he received some fuel over the weekend. “We have fuel for about five days, and after that we will see what happens,” he said.

The owner of Merrivale Sasol said they had been lucky. “We ran out of fuel last week, but we managed to get some fuel delivered to us, and we are not expecting any further problems,” he said.

Margie Smith of Hilton Quarry BP Service station said they had not been affected at all. “We got all of our deliveries last weekend … delivered by BP,” she said.

A staff member at Greenwood Service Station said they had run out of lead-replacement fuel on Monday, but had since restocked.

The strike continues.
