Fuel scarcity hits Imphal

Imphal, Sep 06 (ANI): Hard days are here again for vehicle owners and business community as Manipur is facing problems due to scarcity of oil.

Locals were seen standing in long queues in front of the only running petrol filling station to get their vehicles refueled. Many petrol pumps had put up boards reading fuel reserved for government departments only.

Prices of fuel like petrol have shoot up to between Rs 160 to Rs 180 per litre in black market, while the actual price is Rs. 57.

Rationing of fuel in a few outlets has been initiated since last month from 4 Kl to 12 Kl indifferently in the selected rationalize outlets, till date.
