Fuel shortages hit Gauteng, Cape Town


Fin24 - Dec 9th 2011, 08:33

Johannesburg - Cape Town and Gauteng are experiencing shortages of certain fuel types, the Fuel Retailers' Association (FRA) said on Thursday. 

"Some service stations (are) reporting being dry for six to seven days on one or two products," FRA chief executive officer Reggie Sibiya said in a statement.

"Diesel and ULP95 are topping the product list of shortages."

Last month, Durban suffered a shortage of low sulphur diesel.

On Thursday, Sibiya said depots in Alrode, Langlaagte, Waltloo and Killarney in Gauteng had delivery problems. BP and Caltex were the two companies who seemed to be the worst affected.

Sibiya claimed oil companies were not providing fuel retailers with a proper explanation for the shortages.

The FRA is an independent body which promotes the interests of fuel retailers.
