Fuel supply improved yesterday in most parts of the country as garages received fuel and some were promised supplies, The Chronicle reports.
According to the publication, these towns and cities received fuel yesterday:
In Harare service stations started the day dry, with the minority that had received fuel over the last few days sold out, but deliveries were being made during the day and motorists were queuing from early morning at those stations that were expecting a delivery. Most DFI service stations around the city had fuel throughout the day.
