Aden suffering under urgent fuel crisis

Yemen’s southern port city of Aden, which is controlled by the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) militia, witnessed on Monday a stifling crisis in oil derivatives.

According to local sources, long queues of cars lined up in front of a number of closed fuel stations, in exchange for the recovery of fuel sales on the black market, amid news that the government loyal to the Saudi-led coalition is intending to impose a new price dose in the oil derivatives prices.

The pro-coalition government had imposed a new dose last July by raising the price of a 20-liter gallon of gasoline from 18,800 to 19,800 riyals.

The people of Aden province and the rest of the southern provinces are suffering from repeated crises in oil derivatives amid the deterioration of various basic services such as electricity and water, in addition to the security chaos that the province has witnessed since 2016
