Chinese tiger has nothing in tank

28 Nov 07 - "China is running out of fuel. Police are guarding petrol stations in several inland provinces to prevent fights, as shortages of petrol and diesel are causing huge queues of trucks, buses and cars.

"In Kunming, capital of the southwestern province of Yunnan, 1000 trucks are stranded.

"A truck driver named Li told the Chuncheng Evening News he had been stranded at the Stone Tiger Gate petrol station for three days after searching for fuel in other places, but failing. He said his delivery date was way overdue.

"Another driver, at Geiju city, said a job that would have taken one day in the past, now took three: one on the road, two queuing for fuel.

"Nine days ago, a truck driver was reported to have been stabbed to death in central Anhui province after a row about queuing.

"A few days earlier, at Ezhou in Hubei province, 100,000 people were stranded, unable to get to work, because city buses had run out of fuel.

"The problem would intensify as winter approached, and was starting to affect exports, warned the Commerce Ministry, since diesel was crucial for shifting products to ports."

                 What’s causing this shortage? 
                 Government-controlled prices. 
                 Long lines and non-availability - this is what 
                 you’ll see in your country if Al Gore gets his way
