Tanker drivers will talk to ministry over complaints

Tanker truck drivers have accepted negotiations with the environmental ministry in place of a strike. The truck drivers had blocked delivery of fuel.

The dispute now hinges on the age of tanker trucks that will be allowed to stay in service. The Ministerio de Ambiente y Energía says older tankers are a danger.

The brief strike that started Monday left some stations without fuel because there were no deliveries and some motorists panicked and bought up as much motor fuel as they could.

Supplies are expected to be normal today.
