 INTRODUCTION

Background to the Study 

In the past Nigerians solely depended on the exportation of agricultural product for their source of income,.  This continued until the discovery of the presences of the presence of oil in our country, especially in part Harcourt. This made them (Nigerians) to divert form Agriculture to the exportation of oil to other countries, which was actually fetching them much money even till this present time.

There are many subsidiary oil companies scattered all over the country but the biggest among them is in port-Harcourt and it is called the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC). It is from here that crude oil is extracted from the ground refined to get those components like fuel, kerosene and gas.

There are depots scattered all over the country like shell Port-Harcourt, NNPC Enugu, Eif oil Company, Warri Pipeline are directed towards these oil companies to facilitate distribution.  Tanker drivers and other dealers will load form the depot and distribute to filling stations, then the consumers will buy form the filling stations.

Fuel supply has been moving smoothly in the country before the announcement of the budget by the head of state in January last four year 1999. it was in February 1999 that the whole issue of fuel scarcity started.  This has made it difficult for the government to accomplish that which it proposed to do I the budget.

1.2              STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

The word “Scarcity” means when there is insufficiency of something.  Since there is insufficiency of fuel it is termed as fuel scarcity.

In the past, there has not been any services fuel scarcity, everything was moving smoothly, the industrialist both public and privates, does not have any problem.  Economically the price of goods and services, were affordable by the people. Car owners can just go to filing station and buy fuel at a normal price of N22.00 per liter and with much ease.

Things were moving smoothly in the country and in this part ekiti metropolis until 1994 when we had one case of fuel scarcity not until on up till this movement of this study.

Because of fuel scarcity, people are so desperate to by fuel for their business. For this reasons, whenever any information was passes concerning the presence of fuel in any filling station, car owners will go there and que -up. Some of them will have to sleep in the filling stations a day or more than two days while waiting for their turn.  People or car owners when they cannot buy fuel in any filling station, are forced to buy from the black market at an exhobitant price.  Some people use big gallons to buy fuel that will serve them for some days.

For the reason that there is insufficient fuel in the filling station, makes people sell fuel in ration so that everybody present will buy.  The car owners who think the fuel will not reach tem will start jumping the que, thereby causing fights among themselves.  Because of this reason, the filling station owners invite soldiers so that there will be peace and orderly que in the filling stations. Fuel scarcity are sometimes artificial in the sense that during the Christmas period. Filling station owners will just hoard their fuel in order to sell at a high price.

1.3              OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY

This study has the following objectives:

–                      To find out the causes of fuel scarcity

–                      To recommend what can be done to solve the problem of fuel scarcity.

–                      To find out how the fuel scarcity has affected the business men and women civil servant etc. (the total population of Ekiti metropolis).

1.4                   STATEMENT OF HYPOTHESES

Ho:      The middle men have not been contributing to fuel scarcity.

Hi:       The middle men have been contributing to fuel scarcity

Ho:      Fuel scarcity is not the cause of high cost of transportation

Hi:       Fuel scarcity is the cause of high cost of transportation

1.5       SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

This study will be of great benefit to the Nigeria National Petroleum Company (NNPC) who is not the sole cause of fuel scarcity.  This study will help them to find out those people or those things that contribute to fuel scarcity and take drastic measure to combat them.

This study or research will be of immense benefit to the government because if there is fuel scarcity, it then means that crude oil is also insufficient by this; the government will not have enough oil to transport in order to get foreign exchange.

This study will also be of great benefit to car owners and businesses because if the fuel scarcity is rectified and resolved all business will start improving and progressing.

From this study, the rural drivers will find it easy to transport their farm product from the rural area to urban zones because the cost fuel will be on a lower side.

Also from those research work, it will be kind of encouragement.  In that when the cost fuel is low, the cost of transportation will be also low, and these can lead also to low price of commodity been transported
