Shortage of Lubricants Hits the Local Markets

Audio 1

Major petrol stations in Kampala, have run short of lubricants.

A survey carried out by URN correspondent in Kampala shows a shortage of lubricants at almost all petrol stations in the city.

Fuel dealers in Kampala say the shortage have attributed the shortage of lubricants to the new custom regulations on fuel in Kenya.

Under the new customs regulations, Oil companies importing fuel products through Kenya are expected to execute a bond to fight dumping.

Prices of fuel have remained stable despite the shortages in diesel. Dealers say that the prices are stable, because supplies of petrol have remained regular for the past month.
