    TEMPO.CO, Tasikmalaya - Fuel supply of Premium and Pertamax fuels in three fuel stations in Southern Route of Tasikmalaya have been drained out. Sukamantri, Ciawi, and Gentong Fuel Stations have been running dry today, July 21, causing people, notably homecomers, to line up for fuel.

    Fuel station employee, Herlan, claimed that fuel stock is running low as fuel truck is stuck on traffic. "The fuel truck is stuck in Rajapolah due to traffic," he said. "We have diesel fuel, but we are down on Premium and Pertamax."

    Homecomers from Tasikmalaya heading Bandung were forced to to make a stop in the three fuel stations. Some homecomers even had to purchase fuel in retailers. "I had to buy retailed gas. It has been difficult to find ones," said a driver heading to Bandung.
