Fuel scarcity has hit the State of Osun, crippling business activities in the state for some days now.
It was gathered that the scarcity is connected to a strike by petroleum marketers in the state.
The marketers, according to a report by the News Agency of Nigeria, are said to be anticipating a downward review of the pump price of fuel.
A source told nan that the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria in Osun had directed its members to stop lifting fuel.
Almost all filling stations along the Gbongan-Osogbo Road, including the NNPC Mega Station, had stopped selling fuel since 6 October.
In Ile-Ife, long queues could be seen at various communities, while filling stations along Ede road were under lock and key. Long queues were also seen at Ilesa, Oke-Ogbo and Ijebu-Ijesa Road.
Only one filling station was selling fuel at Ikirun but the station closed early on Saturday.
