Diesel scarcity may force 80% private buses out of service from tomorrow: Assn.

About 80% of private buses will be out of service starting from tomorrow due to the unavailability of diesel, Inter-Provincial Private Bus Association (IPPBA) Secretary Anjana Priyanjith said.

He told the Daily Mirror that they were unable to find a location to refuel. Even though the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) resumed fuel distribution from today for the Western province, we were unable to get any.

Due to the absence of auto diesel, buses used to pump super diesel, even that has not been able to continue for the past few days.

Running buses on super diesel is extremely costly, and the current super diesel variety is not as efficient as previous one, he said. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)
