Queues for petrol return to Jos filling stations

19 December 2011, Sweetcrude, JOS – Queues for petrol have returned to filling stations in Jos, the Plateau State capital, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

The queues, which started on Monday, were as long as 500 metres in some stations in spite of assurance of adequate supply by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).

The queues on the ever-busy highways of Yakubu Gowon, Murtala Mohammed and Ahmadu Bello led to traffic congestion.

NAN correspondent who monitored the development, reports that some stations of major and independent marketers did not have the product and blamed the situation on lack of supplies.

The NNPC mega station on Yakubu Gowon Way, the NNPC dealer station, Mobil station on Bukuru Road and Total station in Dadinkowa which received supplies on Friday were selling at approved pump price of N65 per litre.
