TIJUANA – Mexico’s national oil monopoly began to ration the supply of gasoline in the Baja California region yesterday, much as it has limited diesel deliveries for several weeks.

Joaquín Aviña, president of the Association of Gas Station Owners of Tijuana, which represents 157 stations, said Pemex told the stations it would supply them according to their sales from January to March, without taking into account current demand.

He said that sales during that period, normally a slow time, were far below what they are now.

“This short-sighted approach could generate chaos similar to what we’re currently experiencing with diesel,” Aviña said.

Run-dry: A Shell petrol station in central London is already out of fuel on the first day of the tanker driver strike

Motorists were warned not to ‘waste a drop of fuel’ today as petrol stations began to run dry after tanker drivers started a four-day strike.

Hundreds of union members seeking a pay rise from Shell picketed petrol terminals as many others also turned back from refineries in solidarity.

The Shell drivers have refused an improved pay offer of 7.3 per cent backdated to January, which would take average earnings to more than £39,000.

The great rice crisis: Rationing at UK supermarkets as world prices soar 70 per cent

By CHRISTOPHER LEAKE

Supermarkets are rationing rice in some stores after panic-buying by customers worried about a global shortage.

Retailers including Tesco, Asda, Morrisons and Lidl have introduced quotas for the staple food, which has increased in price worldwide by 70 per cent in a year.

It is believed to be the first time major stores have limited purchases of such foodstuffs since sugar and bread were restricted in the Seventies because of strikes by producers.

Major China cities hit by diesel fuel rationing

BEIJING, May 29 (Reuters) – Petrol stations in at least three major Chinese coastal cities were rationing diesel on Thursday, drivers said, causing long queues of trucks and reviving the spectre of bigger fuel shortages that could stir discontent.

The shortages have worsened since last week, when stations in at least five provinces ran out of stock before the day ended, but have not yet reached the fever pitch of last October.
