Update on current fuel situation. According to Minister of Energy Kanchana Wijesekera, the Energy Ministry is considering importing both 95 Octane Petrol and Super Diesel in a single cargo by the middle of August.
He said, when appearing on a television chat show, that the Energy Ministry has currently stopped distributing 95 Octane Petrol and Super Diesel.
The fuel shipments that entered the nation during the past few days did not contain 95 Octane Petrol or Super Diesel.
He said that because the fuel was designated exclusively for the Health Industry, there was a shortage of 95 octane gasoline.
