They claimed that sealing any filling station found hoarding petrol would serve as a deterrent to others engaging in such practices.

Meanwhile, due to the high transport fare resulting from the petrol price hike, many commuters have resorted to trekking long distances.

Also, only a few commercial motorcyclists are currently operating on the roads.
