Meanwhile, petroleum product marketers in Bayelsa received a total of 962,950 litres of petrol on Wednesday and Thursday in 15 trucks says, the Department said.

He explained that the DPR had intensified surveillance on marketers to ensure that products were not diverted or sold above approved prices.

According to him, the products are distributed to marketers located at strategic locations in the state to cushion the effects of the scarcity currently being experienced in the state.

He said efforts had also been intensified to get more products from the Pipeline and Petroleum Products Marketing Company (PPMC) in Port Harcourt, noting that ``between Wednesday and Thursday, products supply to Bayelsa increased significantly, even though we are yet to meet the demands of the public but there is an improvement.

``We got 15 trucks so far and the state received some 962,950 litres of PMS in two days allocated across the state and we want to emphasise that these products sourced from PPMC should not be sold above approved pump price.
