Sri Lanka petrol running low

Sri Lanka's energy minister has issued a stark warning over the country's fuel stocks as it faces its worst economic crisis in more than 70 years.

Yesterday, Kanchana Wijesekera said the nation only had enough petrol left for less than a day under regular demand.

He also said the next petrol shipment was not due for more than two weeks.

Last week, Sri Lanka suspended sales of petrol and diesel for non-essential vehicles as it struggles to pay for imports like fuel, food and medicines.
