Fuel scarcity resurfaced in Enugu metropolis on Wednesday as petroleum marketers closed down their filling stations, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

NAN reports that virtually all the major and independent marketers closed their stations. Only the NNPC Mega Station on Enugu-Abakaliki Expressway was dispensing products to a long queue of cars on its premises.

Some motorists who spoke to NAN said the situation may be connected with the ongoing monitoring of compliance with the new pump price of N86.50k per litre by the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR). Some of the marketers have allegedly refused to adjust their pump price until they exhaust their old stock.
