Fuel distribution further in doldrums. Price formula must be updated!

The strike action launched by the Private Tanker Truck Drivers’ Association for Petroleum Transportation is continuously in effect.

Calling in a briefing today (02), the Union requested that a discussion be held today with the relevant authorities to resolve the issue of fuel and that an action be taken to update the fuel price formula and pay the due payments as per their request.

Increasing the transport fares solely on the basis of the diesel adjustment is not enough and in the backdrop where the prices of all things have soared the demands made by no means are unreasonable, said Union President A.M.H. Adhikari.

In the continuity of the strike action, no tanker trucks belonging to the Union have been allowed to enter the Muthurajawela terminal or the Kolonnawa terminal and the situation at depots outside Colombo is also similar, Adhikari added.

Meanwhile, fuel stations have also run out of fuel due to the strike action and private tankers supplying fuel to IOC stations are also backing the strike.
