COLOMBO (News 1st); The Petroleum Private Tanker Owners Association says that there is a decline in fuel orders, and in the rate of fuel distribution.

Joint Secretary of the Petroleum Private Tanker Owners Association, Shantha Silva said there is a significant decline in the amount of fuel orders, adding that the number of fuel bowsers has also reduced due to the bowser drivers being hesitant to travel.

According to Silva, at present, only around 100 -150 fuel bowsers are engaged in the distribution process, daily. However, he said that earlier, around 250 – 300 fuel bowsers were used for the daily distribution of fuel.

Pointing out that out of over 1,300 filling stations owned by CEYPETCO, the Association Secretary said that only about 400 filling stations are delivered fuel these days.
