Fuel Supplies Maldives (FSM) revealed the sale of petrol has been limited temporarily after two other private companies that import fuel to Maldives depleted their supplies. 

Speaking to 'Sun', the Managing Director of FSM Mohamed Gasam stated that the private companies Villa Fuel and Hawks Pvt Ltd has run out of their supplies. 

"At the moment apart from STO, the other two parties ran out of their stock. Hence, all their customers are also purchasing fuel from FSM now," said Gasam.

According to Gasam, since FSM is now the only company providing fuel, they have limited the sale and have been selling like that for about three days now. He added that until the other companies get their stock, FSM will be selling in limited quantities.

"Those who ran out of stock are getting new stocks on the seventh. So we believe within the next four or five days, we will get a solution to this problem."

He noted that only petrol was being sold in limited quantities and that there were no issues with the supply of diesel.
