Fuel on Friday 13th - Still Shortages?

Postby Kahuna » Fri Jun 13, 2008 12:02 pm

How are things looking now on the fuel shortage front?

I heard that the blockades were easing at Seville and Madrid - anyone noticed gas stations reopening yet?

Any feedback on the likelihood of fuel over the weekend?

The wife filled up with diesel last night at Malaga airport. She also said that they had fuel in Fuengirola on the Coin road.

It can best be described as patchy and definitely not reliable.

The strike is definitely still on, its just the guardia and government are now taking a very tough line and not allowing hold ups or blockages etc......we are still short over here but some provisions are getting through

Our local petrol station was still coned off this morning but several people where filling up when I drove past again just before 2.00.

It's at Los Gallardos between jct 525 & 520 of the A7 and is just a short detour off the motorway if anyone is passing through and needs fuel.

Very little fish, fresh fruit and veg, and some meats in Mercadona Velez today. Also some ranges of milk sold out (the cheaper end), and very bare frozen veg display cabinets. All fuels available incl diesel at sites other than Eroski. Fairly wide range of all goods in Eroski, with odd exceptions, like no button mushrooms!
Not much Kingsmill bread in SuperSol Torre, probably due to the "buy one get 2nd hslf price offer" rather than poor deliveries!
I have seen no sign of profiteering on what there is for sale, paying same 8.95€/kilo for salmon steaks as last few weeks.

No fuel at all here now, and no access to the 2 supermarkets in town this morning (by vehicle). all access roads in, blocked, and police redirecting traffic. Not that there is any fresh food in the supermarkets... :cry:

Off to Sevilla Airport in 2 hours to collect family......

I have topped up with diesel every day since Wednesday in various places Sevilla/Huelva. This evening El Rocio had notices saying no biodiesel but they had ordinary diesel.

Saw several lorries on the A49 today going into Seville and I even saw a tanker unloading at a fuel station at Aznalcazar this morning.

opencor at la trocha had meat, fish and loads of fruit and veg. mercadona seems the worst hit with their supplies.
