Again, long queues at gas stations and fuel shortages in Cuba

Again, long queues at gas stations and fuel shortages in Cuba

A new fuel crisis looms over the country, judging by the long queues at numerous service centers that Havana woke up with this Friday.

In the Cupet de San Rafael and Infanta, a line of vehicles that occupied a block and a half was waiting to be attended to.

Unlike last March, when due to increased demand -according to the government version-, Cuba spent almost a week with controlled fuelthis time there was no official explanation or posters in the service centers announcing any measure.

The San Rafael employee informed another boy who entered with a knob, that these days “it is oriented not to fill containers”, only to fill the tanks directly.

“What they don’t want is to create a scandal,” the boy said between his teeth as he left, “don’t you see that the owner of the oil is here?” He said ironically, referring to President Nicolás Maduro.

Together with the leaders of the countries of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (Alba), the Venezuelan is meeting this same day in Havana for the Summit improvised by Miguel Díaz-Canel in response to doubts from the United States about whether or not to invite the Island to the Summit of the Americaswhich will be held in Los Angeles between June 6 and 10.

The queue of cars was repeated at the service center of G and 25, in El Vedado, normally with a large influx, where they only sold regular gasoline and diesel. With conditions. “Yes, there is diesel, but it can only be removed with a letter of authorization, because they are state reserves,” an employee of the establishment explained to a customer who came in to ask.

The queue did not reach the dimensions of march, but up to 23rd Street. “It’s going to be put together again,” expressed a taxi driver. “Because if here they only have the Government’s reserves for diesel, there is no special gasoline and only regular, that means that in other places there is none.”

They only regularly sold at the service center on 17th and L, where there was also a respectable queue of cars.  (14ymedio)

This is what happened in Cupet de Malecón and 23, also in El Vedado. However, a small group of waiting cars was also visible, not resigning themselves to leaving the place despite the fact that there was no fuel for sale.

“Is there regular?” Asked a customer, desperate. “I wish there was, at the moment there is nothing,” the employee replied, without giving further explanations.

The largest queue, surrounding the entire block, was at the Tángana service center, on Malecón and 15, where there was regular and special gasoline.

They only sold regularly at 17th and L, where there was also a respectable row of cars.

As long as the queues at the gas stations were those at the bus stops. Transportation in the capital is beginning to suffer in the face of the imminent and umpteenth new crisis.
