Bhubaneswar: With most petrol filling stations running dry after people bought more fuel than normal due to the ongoing drivers’ protest, Odisha Petroleum Dealers Association General Secretary has urged the public not to resort to panic buying.

Utkal Petroleum Dealers’ Association General Secretary Sanjay Lath today appealed to the people to refrain from panic buying. He warned if people keep resorting to panic buying of fuel, the stock may get exhausted in the state by tomorrow afternoon.

The ongoing strike by drivers of commercial vehicles entered the second day today prompting a possible fuel crisis in the state. As per reports, thousands of tankers which transport fuel from depots to filling stations are now off-road due to the strike.
