YANGON: The public in Myanmar are assured that there is enough fuel for domestic consumption as three oil tankers are waiting at the Thilawa Port and another 10 are scheduled to arrive soon.

The State Administration Council (SAC) Information Team, in a statement on Thursday (Dec 7), said arrangements are underway to distribute fuel to the respective terminals soon.

“Concerning the fuel oil, there is enough fuel oil for our country. Oil tankers are also arriving at sea,” said SAC spokesman Maj-Gen Zaw Min Tun.

Myanmar has seen a scramble at fuel pumps recently as the public are anxious following rumours of a fuel shortage and an increase in prices.

The SAC said fuel stations are providing the public as usual, and therefore there is no need buy more than one needs. - Eleven Media Group/ANN
