The fuel shortage, which has seen motorists inconvenienced for more than a week as gas pumps intermittently run dry, has forced Ultramar to suspend diesel deliveries to four Toronto-area service centres and three other Ontario cities – Hamilton, Cambridge and London.
"These sites will remain open only while the product currently in the storage tanks lasts," Ultramar said Thursday in a notice to customers.
"Certain (other) sites may be required to authorize a maximum of 250 litres per transaction."
