Don’t panic, there is sufficient RON 95 in Sarawak

Date:

KUCHING: The Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (KPDNHEP) Sarawak has assured that there is sufficient supply of petrol, including RON95 for daily use in the state.

A spokesman told New Sarawak Tribune that the ministry’s enforcement officers had inspected and contacted petrol stations in Sarawak and has confirmed that the petrol supply remains stable and adequate.

“It (shortage) only happened at a few locations or petrol stations, involving a particular company due to logistics delays… But, it definitely did not affect the whole petrol and diesel supply throughout the state,” he said when contacted.

“We have urged and hoped the company can resolve the issue promptly,” he added.

Meanwhile, the feedback from other petrol stations in Sarawak had stated that they were not experiencing any problems in terms of supply.

It was earlier reported by Borneo Post that shortage of RON95 petrol in Kuching has sparked worry among motorists as several petrol stations in the city have run out of petrol since Monday night.

A petrol station worker claimed that her workplace had been getting huge demand for RON95 since May.

“I suspect that the high demand for RON95 may stem from the fear (among consumers) of a sudden surge in the price of the petrol soon,” said the worker, who requested to remain anonymous.

Felecity Jarau, 37, when interviewed, said she only realised that the stations were running out of RON95 when she wanted to refuel at a station near Jalan Song on her way home from work.

“The workers at a few stations that I visited had also informed me that the RON95 petrol was not available. According to them, there had been a shortage of petrol truck drivers, resulting in the fuel not being delivered to the stations.”
