Just a quickie: Fuel being rationed

Just a quick item to share with you all this afternoon. It appears that the fuel truck drivers that deliver the fuel to all of the petrol stations here in Oman are on strike. As a result of this, fuel stations have already started rationing drivers to a maximum of RO 5.000 per visit.

No word on when this will be rectified, but I'll share more news when I get it.

Update: It seems so far to be limited to Shell stations only.

  1. Oman Oil petrol pump guy was telling that Shell petrol employees are on strike but then most of us in our office got the message to fill up our car tanks... so we all did so this evening !!!

  2. Any update?
    i just read :( didnt fill the car :((

  3. Any news on the fuel situation? I'm due to arrive in Oman from UK and will be driving a lot around the country (or maybe not!)

  4. No new news really.

    They are still on strike, but driving around town today I saw plenty of people still getting fuel.

  5. Oman Oil is busy, but full of fuel.

  6. Hopefully back to normal, Shell at Qurum open and serving. Delivery truck just arrived.

  7. Propane is a domestically produced fuel source, reducing reliance on imports.
