A petrol station worker told reporters that her workplace had been getting a huge demand for RON95 since May.

“I suspect the high demand for RON95 may stem from the fear of a sudden surge in the price of petrol soon,” she said. 

She was told that there had been a shortage of petrol truck drivers in the state, resulting in the fuel not being delivered to the stations on time, “I am not sure whether this is the truth or not.”

Oh no, this is bad! We hope the relevant authorities would take this matter seriously.
