SA's petrol shortage to drag on into mid-February
Petrol shortages sparked by maintenance problems at refineries and the Durban harbour could continue until mid-month.
The South African Petroleum Retailers’ Association (Sapra) director Peter Noke told Beeld newspaper there were maintenance problems at refineries and the Durban harbour which could take up to two weeks to fix.
Petrol stations in Gauteng started running dry at the weekend, according to the Afrikaans daily.
Earlier this month, MPs urged the fuel industry to come up with a coordinated plan to avoid fuel supply problems, which occurred in inland provinces in December.—Sapa.
