Emarat steps into the petrol gap

Emirates 24/7
The Emarat filling stations in the Dubai and across all the northern emirates have witnessed heavy rush and a drastic increase in sales of fuel over the last two weeks, an apparent fallout of non-availability of fuel in other filling stations.

Emarat, a subsidiary of Emirates General Petroleum Corporation, registered a 50 per cent rise in sales over the past two weeks, straining its facilities at many places, Arabic daily Al Ittihad reported.

The rush was particularly heavy in Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman and Umm Al Quwain, while Emarat filling stations in Ras Al Khaima and Fujairah also witnessed a relative increase in demand.

This rise in demand comes following temporary closure of services at many filling stations run by Enoc and Eppco.

According to sources in Emarat, the company has pressed its services on overdrive and continuously stocks its stations with 50 per cent additional fuel.

Enoc and Eppco are in the same family of companies -- it has an annoying flashplayer website.

The story continues and only few petrol stations are providing petrol. However since I have to travel to other Emirates, I have to stand in the queue in Dubai.

Hopefully things will get better soon.

So, I don't actually suppose it will have effect.
