When the union announced repeatedly, especially in its last statement issued on June 26 last year, that it did not accept the principle of non-observance of official prices by station owners even if it was unfair to them and incurred heavy losses, because the union believes in struggle from within institutions and in accordance with the rights stipulated in the law, and was I have consistently asked all station owners not to violate the laws and tolerate prejudice and delay until the union succeeds in stopping it through the relevant official authorities,
And since these authorities were wandering to fuel stations to monitor compliance with the schedule of fixing prices and inspecting their stocks to fight monopoly, and they have shown great injustice with a number of them, as the presence of 1000 liters has been deemed a monopoly in this commodity, and a number of station owners have been arrested and organizing records against them. The official authorities of the administrative, security and judicial authorities have always called for the principle of reciprocity with those whose tanks contain large quantities of gasoline and fuel oil and obliging them to deliver them to the local market and the owners of the stations.Therefore, a delegation from the union headed by the Captain held a lengthy meeting with the Director General of the Ministry of Economy, Dr. Muhammad Abu Haidar, where all matters related to the owners of the stations and their exceptional way of working in these circumstances were discussed, and the difficulties they face in drawing fuel from companies that usually supply their goods and with whom they have commercial contracts that reject some of these. The companies respect them, citing the lack of their goods, while their warehouses contain millions of liters, and the delegation called for the need to put an end to this behavior, which is a fundamental reason in creating the crisis at the level of fuel delivery to citizens and owners of generators and encourages the black market among merchants. It is these companies that import these fuels, and they are the ones who receive gasoline and diesel by codifying the stations. Also, this behavior, on the other hand, draws the owners of the stations into a trap set by them for these companies to demand them the penal items and fines for not purchasing the minimum quantities stipulated in the contracts.
The delegation also discussed the way to deal with the stocks of stations from gasoline and diesel and explain the principle of when it can be considered a monopoly, as it was agreed that the station that proves its sale of fuels to the consumer in a natural way and without legalization, its stock can not be considered a monopoly of any size, and that the station that codifies the sale or abstains from it Its stock cannot be considered a monopoly unless it exceeds 3000 liters. “
