THERE were mixed reactions, on Tuesday, by motorists about the availability of petrol in fuel filling stations in the country.


 
While the scarcity of premium motor spirit (PMS) otherwise called petrol, witnessed in the country last week has subsided in some states, the scarcity still persisted in some.

Reports coming in from Lagos and Oyo states indicated that the scarcity of the product had abated, while it still persists in Abuja, Bauchi and Kwara states.

Fuel supply has also significantly improved in some parts of Lagos State.

Many petrol stations were shut due to lack of products while the few ones selling were having fewer queues when compared with what happened on Christmas Eve and on Christmas day.

Oando, Mobil, Conoil, and Total filling stations situated along Maryland axis were dispensing fuel to motorists but the queues were not long.

A few filling stations like MRS, Heyden and Conoil along Lagos-Abeokuta highway were dispensing to motorists.

NNPC retail station situated at Omole was also dispensing with fewer queues while Total and Oando filling stations were also dispensing to motorists along Oregun axis.
