Three-wheelers, motorcycles, and other vehicles were seen queuing for fuel at the CEYPETCO fuel station in Hatton.
Fuelling stations have taken steps to dispense as much petrol as they can to vehicles waiting in line. CEYPETCO stations said they have enough petrol for only Tuesday (17) and currently are out of diesel.
Despite a large number of customers queuing to purchase kerosene, fuelling stations say they have yet to receive refills.
Meanwhile, the IOC station in Hatton has temporarily closed due to a lack of fuel reserves.
