Shalaf shortage

Leave a comment

Headline reads 'Supply snags cause Shalaf shortage'

I am sometimes reminded that I am a stranger in a strange land. I had to read the entire story to understand what this headline meant.

Shalaf is a brand of LPG cylinders, currently in short supply due to a gas explosion at a petrol station a few weeks ago. Woqod, or Qatar Fuel is, and I use their own words here, ‘a downstream oil storage, distribution and marketing company’.

Fortunately I am not affected by the problem.
