The diesel shortage in Pakistan is likely to last until June.
ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – The Oil Division has failed to provide on-time diesel supplies to wheat farmers even though it is past ten days and shortages will continue for the next ten too, Roznama Dunya reported on Tuesday.
Transporters will leave on the Eid Al-Fitr holiday after ten days and the situation will improve only after June 1. However, diesel shortages will increase if public transportation is opened before or after Eid.
The Petroleum Division acknowledges that there is a shortage of diesel in the country but the situation will soon improve. A dealer, which is linked to petroleum products, said that all marketing companies in the area where wheat was harvested had run out of diesel.
It is further known that all the burden is on Pakistan State Oil (PSO) at this time and some gas stations store diesel to deal with emergency situations.
Another dealer said that there was no chance to improve the situation over the next ten days because tankers would reach Karachi port in two days and diesel would be supplied to other parts of the country in the next four to seven days.
