No diesel shortage in Klang Valley

KUALA LUMPUR: There are no reports of diesel fuel supply shortages in Klang Valley.

The Kuala Lumpur Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs enforcement section when contacted by the New Straits Times said they have not received any reports from petrol station operators or consumers regarding any supply issues.

"So far the diesel supply is okay, we have not received any reports from the Klang Valley area.

"If there are any shortages or supply disruptions, these stations are required to report to us on the matter," it said.

Meanwhile, checks by the New Straits Times at several stations in Klang Valley also found that diesel fuel is being sold as usual with no supply shortages.

A petrol station worker at one of the stations visited by the New Straits Times also said that it is business as usual for the station he is working at.

"Yes, we still have diesel (at my station).

"There are a few people who came and filled up their vehicles who had asked the same thing, but I assured them that there is still diesel here," he said.

On Wednesday, Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs minister, Datuk Armizan Mohd Ali, announced that several petrol stations nationwide facing diesel supply disruptions would receive the fuel within a period of 24 to 48 hours.

However, the issue has already been resolved between the ministries, the Finance Ministry, and the relevant companies.

Earlier, Petronas Dagangan Bhd (PDB) acknowledged that some of its stations nationwide were facing a shortage of diesel supply.

In a statement, PDB informed that the situation is expected to continue until Dec 31.
