Fuel scarcity hit harder in Lagos State yesterday as more filling stations closed their pumps to motorists.

The few that sold petrol across the metropolis had long queues.

Early signs of the commodity’s scarcity surfaced last Wednesday, following weeks of scarcity in Abuja.

Investigation across the metropolis revealed that the few stations that sold fuel restricted it to two or three pumps.

The scarcity may worsen today unless authorities have taken measures to close the demand-supply gap.

But there were no signs last night that the situation would not remain or worsen in the week ahead.

Between Ojota and Ikorodu, filling stations belonging to major marketers were shut while a few owned by independent marketers were dispensing fuel, though slightly above the N165 per litre benchmark.

The increase has not been reflected officially on their pumps.
