The recent spate of Fuel Scarcity is really hitting hard on Nigerians as fuel queues worsen making it hard to get petroleum products from filling stations.
This has led to transport providers to increase fares and making it difficult for commuters to get to their various destinations.
The condition worsened on Tuesday as Commuters were stranded at various bus-stop trying to get transport to their various destination.
Also, the long queues at various filling stations caused by desperate transport operators resulted in a serious traffic jam most especially on Lagos roads.
According to Punch, Correspondents who visited the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation depot in Ejigbo, Lagos, learnt that only 28 tankers loaded PMS on Tuesday, down from between 40 and 50 tankers daily before the scarcity began, while many private depots in Apapa were still without the product.
Many Nigerians are severely affected by the scarcity as for some, most especially for transport providers, it is affecting their business as they have to queue in filling stations for long hours before they get the scarce product, while for some it is difficult to get to their various destinations
Meanwhile, in some parts of Nigeria, the fuel prices have increased.
In Owerri, instead of selling at the normal price of N145 for a litre of petrol, it is being sold at N200 for a litre.
