After closing fuel counters and street vendors | Fuel prices rise, with congestion in petrol stations in Al-Raqqa

Al-Raqqa province: SOHR activists have reported that the General Administration of Customs in north-west Syria issued a resolution on November 29, stating the closure of all fuel counters and stalls in no more 15 days, threatening to punish the violators and to apply the smuggling law in courts.

The resolution of removing random stations and street vendors led to raising the price of fuels, including petrol, gas and diesel, while the stations in Al-Raqqa, six stations licensed by SADCOP (Storing and Distributing Co., Petroleum Products), witnessed large congestion for buying fuel.

According to SOHR sources, the small stations that sold fuels in markets, streets and city neighbourhoods provided over 1,000 job opportunities and managed to achieve balance in providing fuel supplies.

It is worth noting that SADCOP provides one barrel of diesel for each family in the first half of the year and another barrel in the second half of the year. However, the residents complain of the poor quality of the provided diesel and the delayed distribution in several regions and neighbourhoods of the city.
