Petrol queues resurface in Calabar as scarcity persists

Long queues on Wednesday resurfaced at different petrol stations in Calabar metropolis in Cross River State as the scarcity of the product persists.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) correspondent, who monitored the situation, reports that the product now goes for as high as N190 per litre in most service stations in the city.

At Kemsi Petroleum, the product sells for N190 per litre as against the approved pump price of N165 per liter.

A fuel attendant at the station told NAN that the price was determined by the cost of the product.

At the Pabpet Petroleum, the product still sells at the approved pump price of N165 per litre, but had long queues, while customers struggled to gain strategic positions.

A customer, Mr Etiebet Umo, said he joined the queue to be able to buy the product at the approved pump price.

He said, “I have heard rumours of fuel scarcity in the last few weeks in the news, so I was not surprised when they told me that queues have resurfaced.”

A taxi driver, who identified himself as Friday, feared that the situation would cause untold hardship for residents. (NAN)
