With petrol stations across the state currently experiencing a Diesel shortage, 3AW Breakfast have compiled a list of places where listeners have seen Diesel available.

Seen a petrol station with Diesel? Comment below

With severe storms shutting down Diesel refineries last week, the demand for fuel at this time of year has been heightened and shortages are expected for a number of days.

Emergency Services Minister Peter Ryan said diesel supplies to the emergency services have been secured, and that he'd been informed by the petrol industry that relief for motorists was on its way.

  • It's been a week since the local BP's had any diesel. If it was union related Neil would be calling for blood. Biggest coverup since the Airport Rail Link :p
