KARACHI: Long queues of vehicles were seen outside Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) stations in the metropolis Sunday morning as gas stations reopened after nearly a week.

SSGC had earlier announced the opening of CNG stations at 8:00 am from Thursday but later extended the closure for another 48 hours across Sindh.

The authorities had previously warned that the gas shortage will heighten in January because of the authorities' failure in getting hold of three cargoes of LNG.
