Transport strike continues. Car finance may be the solution to petrol shortages

Satawu the transport workers union is still on strike. This strike is affecting fuel deliveries and many petrol stations are running out of fuel. The strikers have not had their demands met yet and with the global financial crisis will find it hard to. This means that we can expect petrol to be scarce for the next while. Is it time to get finance for a better value car?

The financial papers have covered this story in some depth and this is what they had to say.

The Mail and Guardian came in with the headline 'Talks continue as fuel stations run dry'. The concerned parties felt that they had come to an agreement but there was some dispute about who is covered by it. The financial agreement was also 2% lower than the union had been calling for. There have been some reports of violence and intimidation on the part of the strikers.

iAfrica noted in an article titled 'Dead rubber' that the police had responded with rubber bullets to protestors in Johannesburg. The police said this was to disperse people who had assaulted two truck drivers. The strike continunes and more petrol stations are expected to run out of petrol supplies. Now is the time when super fuel efficient vehicles come into their own.
