Nationwide fuel shortages are ongoing in Uruguay due to a strike at the national oil company (ANCAP). As of Tuesday, June 13, more than 90 percent of service stations in the country were dry, including in the capital Montevideo. The government has vowed to take steps to address the issue but shortages could nonetheless continue in the coming days. 


ANCAP employees launched the strike after the Uruguayan government announced plans to alter worker health plans. 


Individuals in Uruguay are advised to fill up gas tanks whenever possible, be prepared for transportation disruptions, and monitor the situation.
