Are consumers being jilted by fuel stations?

FUEL SHORTAGE .00_00_32_11.Still001

Reports on a shortage of regular fuel at the pumps began reaching our newsroom at the start of this week.  We visited three fuel stations yesterday and today and found that at the three locations there were no regular fuel.  At first, we thought that consumers were capitalizing on the sharp decrease in prices which would explain the shortage. 

Reports on a shortage of regular fuel at the pumps began reaching our newsroom at the start of this week.  We visited three fuel stations yesterday and today and found that at the three locations there were no regular fuel.  At first, we thought that consumers were capitalizing on the sharp decrease in prices which would explain the shortage.  This evening, however, the Government of Belize sent out a release saying there is no shortage in regular fuel.  As a matter of fact, the release sent a strong message to fuel station dealers reminding them that they have an obligation to supply inventoried price-controlled commodities to consumers.  The release also reminded the fuel stations that any retailer who declines to sell regular fuel in stock is acting in contravention of the Supplies Control Regulations.  In other words, there is enough regular fuel in the country to service consumers.  The Supplies Control Unit under the Belize Bureau of Standards has verified that their inventory confirms that there is an adequate supply of regular fuel in the country.  So, the next time you go to a fuel station and regular fuel is not available, you can call Consumer Protection at 0-800-283-5587.
