Strike! No Oil!

By Lu


Hmm, I just received a very disturbing news from my mother. It seems that rumors are flying are that the petrol kiosks around the state are on strike – refusing to sell precious hydrocarbons to customers. I don’t know how long this strike will be as unconfirmed sources estimate it to be from one to three days. For all that I know, the line for the petrol kiosks are just as long as when the government recently announced the hike in fuel price. People really do respond for the slightest incentives they can find.

I’m not sure if the strike is a nationwide protest against the recent fuel hike, or just a local movement. I hope it won’t esclate when I am going for my visa interview in a few more days. No fuel on sale means no means of transportation for me to go to the embassy.
