GUWAHATI, July 3 - Petrol depots in the city reported scarcity of fuel on Monday in view of a strike called by an oil carrier association and a workers� union over their various demands.

The strike had begun on Saturday, but the carrier association suspended its agitation today. The workers� association is reportedly in talks with the IOC authorities to settle its demands.

The oil scarcity was also aggravated following panic buying by customers yesterday due to a proposed shutdown call by dealers.

The North East India Petroleum Dealers Association had called a shutdown today, but it was withdrawn late last night.

The shutdown was called following an �arbitrary decision� by the IOC to close down a petrol pump in the city. The district administration intervened and asked the IOC to reopen the pump, the association said.

The dealers, however, said the situation would ease in a day or two.
