Lahore, May 24, 2022: Oil Companies Advisory Council (OCAC) confirms the availability of sufficient stocks of fuel products in the country, including the depots in Punjab region. Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) are making fuel deliveries to the retail outlets, however the deliveries are being hampered due to road blockades in the major cities of Punjab and may result in delayed deliveries to petrol pumps.
OCAC further expresses its concern regarding the prevalent situation of road blockades and the alleged speculation of low stocks circulating on the various forums, and requests the public to avoid panic buying. There are ample stocks of MOGAS and HSD in the Punjab region and OMCs are making their best efforts to top-up the retails outlets timely, despite the road blockages.
OCAC has also shared these concerns with the Chief Secretary of Punjab and further requests the support of Local Administration for the safe and secure movement of Tank Lorries from respective depots to various petrol pumps across the province, till the situation normalizes.
