Fill it up!

Oil is suddenly on the demand in India due to the strike by employees. The strike is spearheaded by the Oil Sector Officers’ Association, or OSOA, an umbrella group that is demanding a pay increase for the 55,000 employees it represents.

While services in the power, fertilizer, steel and aviation sectors were affected, the Congress party-led United Progressive Alliance government stuck to its stand and public sector units sacked 67 executives for joining the strike.

It seems this will take some time to settle so better fill your vehicles up and use less fuel.What a fields day mechanics and petty vendors have during this time! With the queues getting longer and longer at the outlets the demand for fuel sold in black has almost doubled. The price is close to Rs. 90/- per litre.
