LAHORE:In about a week, people have to bear the brunt of petroleum products’ short supply in view of its possible price hike.

Most of petrol filling stations have been resorted to rationing fuel due to its lesser supply. Motorcyclists are only being sold Rs200 petrol amid long queues of people at the petrol pumps while car owners could buy fuel of just Rs2000 at once.

The sale of petrol and diesel at the petrol pumps has virtually been stopped as oil marketing companies failed to ensure smooth availability of fuel. The situation is said to be more grim at towns and small cities across the province and the district administration has completely failed to ensure fuel sale at filling stations.
