Surviving Fuel Scarcity in Nigeria Why? And How to Get By

The Independent Petroleum Association of Nigeria (lPMAN) has attributed the current fuel scarcity to the unavailability of petroleum products and difficulty in accessing foreign exchange by marketers.

They alleged that the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) Ltd., had stopped importing enough petrol to meet demand in the country.

Whatever the reason may be, there is no denying that the current era of petrol shortage, has severely disrupted everyday life for the average Nigerian.

The increase in the price of the premium motor spirit has resulted in exorbitant prices for transportation, fights at fueling stations, and typically, an increase in the price of commodities.

So what can you do to get by?

Account for the traffic caused by the fuel queues and the lack of commercial transport:

Leave earlier to stand a better chance of making your appointments.

Only go out when absolutely necessary:

Limit your excursions outside to only when absolutely necessary to conserve fuel and save on transportation costs for the duration of the crisis.

When you need to get fuel, leave early for the station to make the front of the queue.

We’ll get through this together like we do everything else.

Stay safe out there.
