No Payment of Fuel Bills Leads to Diesel Ration

Information to our newsroom is that the supply of diesel fuel is running very low. In fact going into the weekend, gas stations are receiving only a limited amount and in some cases, they are rationed to a thousand gallons, which is less than the demand in normal circumstances. Diesel is sourced from PUMA and there are two tankers with diesel and regular gasoline already in country, but from what we are told, they are waiting for clearance to unload.  Pass the weekend; the shortage could become more acute. One unconfirmed report is that PUMA cannot receive any fuel because G.O.B. has not paid outstanding bills. The Ministry of Finance did not offer any comments today.
