A consumer rights group is pushing the Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority-MERA to provide a daily list of service stations that have fuel.
There is fuel scarcity in the country, as importers fail to procure the required quantities due to the forex crisis.
This has led to many fuel service stations having no diesel or petrol, across the country, forcing motorists to spend hours on snaking queues day and night.
At the same time, MERA has issued a directive that anyone wishing to purchase fuel in containers should first get its approval.
This is aimed to check illegal sale of fuel, as some buy the commodity to sell on the black market.
Executive Director of the Consumers Association of Malawi-CAMA John Kapito hopes the move will ease congestion in service stations.
There was no immediate comment from MERA officials on the matter.
