“We are in December now and from experience in the past there has always been shortage of fuel to the public.
“So people should not be tempted to keep fuel at home. Don’t keep fuel at home; don’t keep fuel in your vehicle.
“If you think you are careful while on the road what about the person coming behind you?
“What about somebody who is just overtaking and will come and hit your booth where you keep the fuel.
“So, don’t let us keep fuel at home or in the booth of our vehicles; it is very dangerous.’’
