Only gas station in Mayaro closed for more than a month

The only gas station in Mayaro has been closed for more than a month.

Mayaro councillor Kryron James said it has been under renovations.

“The Mayaro gas station has been closed for about a month or so, could be more than a month. The gas station has been under some renovations recently. But currently it is closed. Yesterday, I was able to get confirmation from management at the gas station that they’re currently awaiting equipment from NP for its reopening,” James said.

He says residents have been distressed as a result of the closure.

James is calling on NP to do all in its power to open the gas station as soon as possible.

“I want to emphasize the fact that this is the only gas station for the people of Mayaro, Guayaguayare, Ortoire and environs to utilize. The lack of this gas station being open is affecting the fisher folk, the taxi drivers and the regular residents like myself. So this message is to the management of MP, please do not forget to the people of Mayaro. Do what is necessary to get this gas station opened,” the councillor said.

And, if you’re going to Mayaro, for the long weekend he is advising that you get gas before.

“If you’re coming into Mayaro for the long weekend, stop in Rio Claro and get gas.”
