In three points visited, in the Polana Caniço neighborhood, none of them had the fuel, a situation that worries customers.Gil Correia, a gas dealer, said that his tank has not received fuel for a week and that, last time, it only received 50 cylinders that ran out in less than 30 minutes. “I have more than 700 cylinders here, empty; it’s a very complicated situation, because we don’t sell or earn. We have customers who come from all over the city, hoping to find something here , but nothing”, he said, worried. As he received clients from all over the city, the solution found was to write down their numbers in a notebook so that they can be contacted as soon as there is gas.
