CHINA is running out of fuel. Police are guarding petrol stations in several inland provinces to prevent fights, as shortages of petrol and diesel are causing huge queues of trucks, buses and cars.

In Kunming, capital of the southwestern province of Yunnan, 1000 trucks are stranded.

A truck driver named Li told the Chuncheng Evening News he had been stranded at the Stone Tiger Gate petrol station for three days after searching for fuel in other places, but failing. He said his delivery date was way overdue.

Another driver, at Geiju city, said a job that would have taken one day in the past, now took three: one on the road, two queuing for fuel.

Nine days ago, a truck driver was reported to have been stabbed to death in central Anhui province after a row about queuing.

A few days earlier, at Ezhou in Hubei province, 100,000 people were stranded, unable to get to work, because city buses had run out of fuel.

Beijing has been insulated from the headache, and the wealthy coastal provinces are mostly better stocked, because the refineries are nearby.

The problem would intensify as winter approached, and was starting to affect exports, warned the Commerce Ministry, since diesel was crucial for shifting products to ports.

The system is suffering from pressure of demand to sustain its economic growth at the current 11.5per cent - with China now the second-biggest consumer of oil after the US.

Diesel imports rose 46.5per cent in the first nine months of the year, compared with the same period last year.

The other cause of the supply-demand mismatch, is the stuttering transition from government-controlled prices to market pricing.

The Government wishes to graduate towards a system that allows prices to move with international markets.

But inflation is at a 10-year high of 6.5per cent and the Government is reluctant to let oil, a key input for distribution of all products, float free as yet.

The two companies that dominate petrol and diesel sales, Sinopec and PetroChina, are state-controlled but also listed on stock markets, highly competitive, and anxious to become even more market-driven. Both pledged this week to boost their imports, especially diesel.

As inflation began to accelerate this year, the Government announced it was capping the prices of key commodities it still controlled, including oil, until the end of the year.

But it relented under strong pressure from Sinopec, PetroChina and other oil refiners and distributors, and conceded a 10per cent rise from this month.

Even after the 10 per cent rise, the price remains well beyond international levels, and China has to import about half its oil, for which it must pay world prices.

"US have reserves for about 10 years"

If your talking about the Strategic Petroleum Reserve
you are waaay off.
Current storage capacity - 727 million barrels
Current days of import protection in SPR - 56 days
(Maximum days of import protection in SPR - 118 days in 1985)
International Energy Agency requirement - 90 days of import protection (both public and private stocks)
(SPR and private company import protection - approx. 118 days)

hate to speak for someone else, but i think he is talking about proven reserves, still in the ground, that would be about right, except for the tar sands could extend that a bit
either way, it is refinery capacity that we are all lacking, and the EPA pretty much shut that industry down, and Nuclear

331920 .... YOU beat me to the punch ... almost !

THIS will be the SECOND major economic downturn, other than the sub-prime CDO/CMOs; BUT, on the OTHER side of the golbe, affecting the SECOND largest importer of oil and pitting US against THEM to obtain same.

THIS crisis could easily be what is needed to send the high-flying Hang Sang stock exchange DOWN, (as their economy implodes) with MOST Chinese having their savings FULLY invested in what they thought was an ' ever rising market', like the 1929 USA.

All historical government solution to HUGE homegrown problems ? WAR, as it always takes the peoples mind OFF the problem, with an even greater, more terrorifing problem; HOW to stay alive !

yeah well that doesn't account for all the oil haliburton still has capped and waiting in the ground to be pumped...thousands of wells scatter all throughout the North west.

don't believe in "peak oil" bullshit...there is more oil on the "western slope" than all that was ever in Saudi Arabia

why else haven't we switched to another fuel source...DUH, we are sitting on the golden egg while draining other countries dry...and making the citizens pay for it.

the war machine runs on oil
world economy is based on oil
oil barons run the world

China is being manipulated because of its lack of oil...or we are being led to believe they have none of it in all of their vast provinces...they may be holding out too for all we know.
