Fuel shortage persists

Fuel products remain scarce in Burundi and the government has now rationed fuel to 20 litres per vehicle for a period of 15 days, WFP said in its latest weekly emergency report. The fuel shortage has led prices of other commodities and services to more than double, it stated. Meanwhile, 13 stations in Bujumbura received fuel supplies from the Societe d'entreposage des produits petroliers since last Friday, the Net Press agency reported on Monday.
