An IOC filling station in Horana, Gurugoda was overwhelmed when a bowser arrived after nearly a week.
A stack of motorbikes appeared in front of the petrol station creating heavy traffic on the Ingiriya-Horana Main Road, putting drivers, pedestrians, petrol station employees and Security Forces in serious danger.
Finally, the fuel supply ran out quickly and the majority of people who had been waiting in line for days had to return empty-handed.
