Consumers have complained that the fuel supply has not yet been restored at many locations, thought the strike was announced as being over.

Complaints have been received that certain filling stations are displaying signs stating ‘No fuel please” and are not open for business.

Media Spokesman for the petroleum trade union collective Bandula Saman Kumara said that reports state that fuel is not available at 700 filling stations throughout the island.

He also said that all those who were on strike yesterday, have reported for duty today.

Chairman of the Petroleum Corporation Shehan Senevirathna said over 100 fuel trucks had left Kolonnawa and Muturajawela terminals and that supplies would be restored by 4pm today.

The strike launched by the petroleum trade union collective against the decision to lease out Trincomalee china bay tanks to India ended last night.

The strike was called off after the trade unions held discussions with the Prime Minister.
