The residents of Ibadan, Oyo State capital are again witnessing a series of gridlocks as fuel scarcity reportedly hits different parts of the state, forcing motorists to spend hours at filling stations while battling to get the product.
According to a field survey of Apete, Ijokodo, Sango, Dugbe, and Eleyele axis of the city carried out by Oyoaffairs.net on Monday, many motorists, bikers, and private vehicle owners are finding it difficult to get fuel.
Speaking with our correspondent, a source lamented that he was attended to after being in the queue for about three hours. He, therefore, urged the government to find a lasting solution to fuel scarcity as it is gradually turning into a norm.
In the meantime, the end of the year has been characterised as a period when fuel scarcity bites even harder and the citizens are left with no choice but to cope with the situation.
Last week, while some filling stations sold for N190 – N200, some sold for N220 – N250 of which the price has hiked to around N350 and N400 in the black markets.
