Brax: Better gasoline, yet shrinking diesel supply

The member of Gas Stations Owners’ syndicate, George Brax, on Monday issued a statement in which he anticipated a better gasoline supply and shorter queues at gas stations across Lebanon within the coming few days “now that ships have been unloaded after the Central Bank has paid due bills for importing companies.”

However, Brax anticipate a dwindling supply of diesel nationwide.

“The diesel problem is more complicated due to the severe power rationing  that exceeds twenty hours per day. This has doubled the need for diesel at the time that the Central Bank does not have sufficient funds for importing companies to be able to import it,” he explained.

Consequently, Al-Brax appealed to President of the Republic, General Michel Aoun, and Caretaker prime minister, Hassan Diab, “to request of Central Bank Governor, Riad Salameh, to make an exceptional allocation for a number of ships to import diesel.”
