Oil marketers have said there could be scarcity of petrol in the country, if the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) does not make the product available to depot owners and other dealers.
Long queues have resurfaced in different filling stations in Lagos State since Monday, causing traffic gridlock in Ikeja and other areas.
The queues were also noticeable at filling stations along Ikorodu Road in Lagos.
Also, the Total filling station at the Mobolaji Bank Anthony Way had queues which led to traffic jam around the Ikeja axis.
Many of the filling stations along the Ikeja axis, through Obafemi Awolowo Road in Ikeja, were shut.
It was also reported that all the filling stations along Ogunnusi Road, inbound Berger, did not sell petrol to customers.
It was gathered that filling stations owned by the NNPCL along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway did not dispense fuel as of Monday evening.
