Default Oil Companies strike.. Most pumps running dry, Flights Delayed!

Today I had a hard time finding diesel, finally found at lajpat nagar, Delhi. None of the Noida Pumps have any fuel.
Any idea how long will this continue. The pumps which still have fuel(eg opposite Hyatts) will run dry soon if no fresh supplies come.

Luckily HP guys are not participating, so HP bunks may have fuel, but expect long queues

Heard that pumps in Bangalore are also going dry. No problems heard of in Bombay area so far. Tanked up yesterday night.

Added to that there is a transporter strike too. In Cochin almost all pumps are dry and petrol is available in a few bunks that too only premium fuel.

I am 95% sure that these cheats are selling regular diesel as premium. In these times, there's no officer to supply, forget about quality control :frustrated:

Had tanked up couple of days ago but at this rate, I guess I need to tankup again.

what about HP pumps at Noida? The ones in sector 41/39. Did you also look there? I normally go there for my petrol requirements.

I saw a big queue falling out to the road in front of the BP bunk, in airport road Bangalore half an hour back. Should have been at least 20+ cars queued up to fill fuel. Looks bad.

I had gone to the HP bunk in Brookfields near Cosmos Mall (Bangalore) to tank up on petrol. I was an early bird, and even then there was a huge rush building up. I was fortunate enough to have half tank remaining in the car, and i had also sufficiently filled some fuel in my bike as well yesterday.

I immediately informed a friend of mine who had just returned from Kerala this morning and had a car which was nearing empty. He has an urgent trip to make tomorrow and couldnt afford to be out of fuel.

Panic buying is going to render most bunks dry pretty soon.

Is everyone affected nationally ? My father said that they are not getting gas to run turbines at their plant. Some strike is ON. But I am not able to notice any long queues in front of any fuel station in Vadodara.

Also there were many trucks plying on Vadodara streets yesterday.
