Haiti is facing a severe shortage of fuel needed to run generators that supply electricity to most companies, businesses and organizations in the country and to many homes.

The shortage is the result of the activities of armed groups leading to the paralysis of the country, preventing access to the port storage area of ​​the capital and smuggling, attacking and threatening transporters.

Up to this point, it has led to officers having police officers to take tanker trucks on their transport missions, without allowing them to regulate fuel supply.
