An acute gas (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) shortage has hit some parts of the Greater Accra, Western and Central Regions. The situation has left consumers who depend on LPG for domestic, commercial and industrial purposes stranded.
According to residents in the affected areas, the shortage, which started on Wednesday, October 28, is taking a toll on them. The shortage has been blamed on the strike action declared by the Gas Tanker Drivers last month.
A customer who preferred to remain anonymous said this was the first time he was experiencing a shortage of the fuel at the Awudome gas station where he always gets his cylinder filled. “Gas is what we use for everything. This is the first time I have experienced a shortage at the Awudome gas station,” he said.
