Sources from the Litro Gas Company state, the shortage of gas experienced across the Island will end in a few days’ time.
The reason for the shortage was due to a delay in the arrival of the ships transporting gas to Sri Lanka.
Although a ship was due to dock today, its arrival has also been delayed.
As the price of gas has been reduced, the demand has increased.
However, information has surfaced that certain errant traders are withholding their stocks, to deliberately inconvenience the public, as the country is in the run-up to an election.
Another reason for the shortage is the decision taken by Saudi Arabia to cut down its gas exports by 40 per cent.
