[2014-06-10] 3,000 Nationwide Gas Stations to Shut Down for One Day on June 12th

전국 3,000여개 주유소, 12일 하루 문닫는다

3,000 Nationwide Gas Stations to Shut Down for One Day on June 12th

 

In protest of the government’s plan to require nationwide gas stations to submit weekly sales reports, more than 3,000 gas stations across the nation announced that they will shut down their business on June 12th for one day.

According to the Korea Oil Stations Association, a total of 3,023 stations across the nation will close their doors for a one-day protest this Thursday.

The government previously announced that it will enact a new rule that requires gas stations to submit weekly reports that contain information on gas stations’ purchases and sales of petroleum products as part of an effort to prevent fraudulent sales practices that involve fake or mixed fuel.

However, gas stations maintain that the weekly reports will not be very effective in banning the use of fake gasoline but will only result in adding an additional burden to gas stations.

In Gwangju and Jeollanamdo there are about 1,200 member gas stations of the Korea Oil Stations Association that is staging the one-day shutdown, and among them, some 20 to 30 percent are predicted to participate in the joint closure of the stations.
