In spite of the long queues that were observed at fuel stations in Colombo and surrounding suburbs over the last two days, the fuel distribution has returned to normal.
 
The Ministry of Petroleum Resources Development said that there have been no reports about a fuel shortage anywhere on the island. 
 
The Ministry also pointed out that action has been taken to distribute sufficient stocks of fuel island-wide.
 
The Ceylon Petroleum Corporation authorities lodged a complaint with the CID yesterday (20) stating that false information is being spread over a non-existing fuel shortage. 
 
 Minister Arjuna Ranatunga said at a media briefing yesterday that although about 2500 tons of fuel were released per day, it has recently become necessary to issue more than 3000 tons of fuel per day.
 
The Minister said that this has created a problematic situation.
