In addition, the key petroleum traders should closely monitor fluctuations in the petroleum sources, and in case of difficulties and beyond their competence, they need to report to the Ministry of Industry and Trade for a timely solution.This Ministry stated: Recently, the world petroleum market has fluctuations in supply and demand and prices, affecting the domestic petroleum market. In order to ensure the petroleum supply for domestic production, business and consumption, the Ministry of Industry and Trade has asked the key petroleum traders to ensure the petroleum supply for domestic production, business and consumption as well as for consumption units in the system.
