The Secretariat of the Holy City of Makkah closed a large number of gas stations on the roadway between the Holy sites of pilgrimage due to licensing violations. The Secretariat disconnected electricity to these stations, Arabic daily Sabq reported.

The closing of the offending gas stations has caused severe traffic jams around the two remaining gas stations that were open in the area. These gas stations soon faced shortage of supply, especially gas type 95, which is in high demand.
