Puma Energy Rations Fuel Amid Increase in Demand at the Pump

There is a report tonight that fuel stocks are running low at gas depots countrywide. As a result, the main fuel importer, Puma Energy, has been rationing stocks, in particular for diesel which is retailing at seven dollars and ninety-seven cents per gallon.  The cutback to consumers has been caused by a huge increase in demand due to lower prices for diesel and more activity generated in the sugar industry because of the ongoing sugar crop. Word to News Five is that Puma is also importing fuel by land to avert a shortage. For the rest of the week, the rationing will continue until a tanker arrives over the weekend. Fuel suppliers believe that the situation will normalize once the tanker arrives.
