The fuel situation has significantly improved in the country with most service stations now having petrol, which was recently in short supply.
A survey by the ZBC News in Harare this morning noted that the queues that had developed at various service stations over the past two days have disappeared as motorists are now able to access petrol on the back of improved supplies.
“I was expecting a queue when I arrived here, but I am happy the situation has returned to normal, this is much appreciated,” a motorist said.
Another noted: “It is a huge relief if supplies have been restored this will be very good even as we go for the festive season.”

This comes after assurance by government that 28 million litres of petrol has been pumped into the country following resumption of supplies from Beira, with a further 37 million litres expected by this Thursday.
