Long fuel queues have resurfaced in some parts of the country, particularly Harare as more businesses resume operations and more people go back to work, Business Times reports. This was revealed in a snap survey conducted by the publication. The development was further confirmed to the publication by ZERA acting CEO Eddington Mazambani who said:
I heard that queues have resurfaced in most service stations around Harare but I have to find out what the problem is.
However, over and above all the underlining issues, industry and businesses have reopened therefore demand will go high. What is needed is for us to procure more fuel to meet the increasing demand.

The fuel shortage has also resulted in the resurgence of fuel dealers who are selling the precious liquid for between $0.8 and $1 per litre. Zimbabwe’s fuel consumption had gone down 40% due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.
