Small Private Cars Wasting Fuel & Creating Crisis & Bad Optics, Says The Herald

The government-controlled publication, The Herald, said in an editorial today that small privately owned cars are contributing to the fuel crisis by using fuel for non-productive purposes.

Referring to them as “small fuel-happy cars” the publication said these cars are creating a sense of crisis and chaos, along with bad optics. The government, says the editorial, has done enough but small cars and fuel station companies that are misappropriating fuel/USD allocations are causing the crisis.

Says the editorial:

Additionally, Government should take measures to ensure it does not waste foreign currency on fuel.

A cursory look at the demand and consumption of fuel shows that a majority of it goes to luxury use, with small vehicles dominating.

It follows that where petrol is concerned, Zimbabwe is happily burning away fuel on non-productive use.

Strangely when there are shortages, it is these small fuel-happy cars that create a sense of crisis and chaos, along with the bad optics.

We suggest that Government must institute measures that discourage the happy and prodigious use of fuel while promoting productivity.
