Citizens in Aden repeatedly complained about the worsening crisis of acute shortage in fuel supply used in running many businesses. Citizens clamored for immediate action by the government and demanded settling the crisis, as prices of fuel in the black market hit 40 thousand Yemeni Rial, about 159.84 dollars, per 20 liters

As you can see, I was deeply affected by the fuel crisis. I make a living through this bus. Workers in gas stations claim that they ran out of petrol, not to mention that they barely fill up my car once a week. I’m not sure if they do that deliberately to then sell petrol to the black market, where prices are too high, reaching 25 to 30 thousand Rials

-SOUNDBITE (Yassin Mothna- a citizen)

We are suffering from a persistent shortage in oil derivatives supply causing a drastic spike in oil prices in the black market. Therefore, we are out of work as we can’t afford such prices. We hope the government provide us with oil and work on laying a radical solution for this crisis
