Petrolina and Agip issued a statement saying that their stations would be operating normally and accepting cards for payment of fuel.
Chairman of the Petrol Owners Association, Stephanos Stephanou said that the situation has worsened since yesterday.
More stations are accepting cash only and from tomorrow no stations would be accepting cards.
As customers run out of cash the stations cannot pay suppliers and would therefore have to close.
Petrol stations will only accept cash according to the head of the Petrol Stations Owners Association. He says they require cash to pay suppliers for deliveries.
The price of fuel rose by a record 13 cents in January.
The prices of petrol and diesel increased by up to 2.1%, this on top of an increase in duty of 8.2% and in VAT from 17 to 18%.
Further rises can’t be ruled out.
The strike which threatened to close all petrol stations in Cyprus has been called off after the interior minister agreed to review and impose stricter restrictions on licences for new stations.
The indefinite fuel strike has been confirmed and will start tomorrow according to the operators association.
