Fuel scarcity returned to the Federal Capital Territory yesterday as vehicles were back on long queue at filling stations.

A litre of petrol, which sold for N100 after the May/June fuel scarcity, is now N150 per litre, thereby forcing the cab drivers to increase the transport fares.

At Total, Oando, NNPC, Conoil, consumers expressed dissatisfaction and lamented over the new price of petrol, which they described as unbearable and painful.

It was learnt that the ongoing cleansing exercise at the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) may have been responsible for the scarcity.

A Taxi driver lamented, “On Monday, we still bought the fuel for N87, N100, but getting out today, it is another story and the suffering we go through to manage to get what we use is terrible.”

Another driver said: “The truth is just that we want Mr Buhari to find a lasting solution to this mess. Today, there would be scarcity. Tomorrow, it will go. Next tomorrow, it will come again. Here we are now, queuing for fuel. For what reason? I am afraid that today, if it continues, it might even get worst, because the transport fare would increase.”
