Chennai: Just days after the Rs 7.50 per litre petrol price hike, there now seems to be a shortage of petrol in Chennai. Most of the petrol pumps in the city are running dry and the few that are open are witnessing massive crowds with people queuing up with cans and bottles to get petrol.
While the petrol pump associations are blaming oil companies for not supplying enough fuel, oil companies have vehemently denied any shortage.
Tamil Nadu Petroleum Dealers Association President M Kannan said there was shortage of supply of petrol and diesel due to reported under production by the refineries.
