Fuel Shortage Fears Dispelled After Deliveries Resumption

Oil importing companies in Lebanon on Tuesday resumed the delivery of fuel to gas stations across the country after the Customs employees suspended their strike.

The Daily Star newspaper quoted a security source as saying that Customs employees involved with importing and distributing fuel and gasoline have suspended their strike, while those working in other sectors within the department as well as some employees at the Port of Beirut have carrying on their strike.

Consultant for the Syndicate of Gas Station Owners, Fadi Abou Chakra, assured that the fuel crisis has been solved and that stations nationwide will be supplied today as normal.

Cars piled into gas stations across the country on Monday amid fears of a fuel crisis due to the strike staged by the Customs Department employees.

Drivers queued to fill their tanks after George Brax, head of the Brax Petroleum Group, warned of a fuel shortage should the strike go on.
