The Truckers strike created ripples closer home. For starters, one kg of tomatoes rose from Rs.7 to Rs.24 in a single day. That’s just an indication for the price rise for the rest of the vegetables too. Panic started to grip the motorcyclists and car owners when the head of the ‘Petrol Station Owners Association’ gave an interview at Sun TV that most petrol stations would run dry today. Me and my friend quickly rushed to the nearest petrol bunk to find an already jam packed petrol station. Like us, most were playing it safe by topping up their tanks.
