Another fuel shortage to hit Freetown
Sierra Express Media understands that a fuel shortage will soon hit the capital of Freetown. We are informed that today (Monday) is going to witness yet another queuing as the last stock made available to the fuel stations was a borrowed consignment from TOTAL, which the National Petroleum Company (NP) undersigned to shed the waves during the independence eve.
Our source intimated to us that a current fuel stock has arrived in the supply of NP but when they have done the cross over stocking to the TOTAL fuel station the remaining stock is not enough to cover the competitive demands of clients.
This has caused major shock waves as each time a fuel shortage occurs, it attracts an increase in prices of pomp per litre. Many a times, economists have slammed the high cost of transportation as having bearing with the impoverished nature of the country’s penury stricken masses. Many products that are supposed to sell at a cheaper rate get an inflated price tag because the traders have to squarely balance their overturn in profit sales from which they manage their living costs.
Many accusing fingers point to the removal of fuel subsidy by the current government. Lots of people are clamouring that the fuel subsidy should be fixed back to encourage a level of stability on the running income of the penury stricken masses in the country, who most times are the ones that suffer the brunt of economic show down.
