Gas shortage in N. Korea


PYONGYANG, North Korea — Motorists in Pyongyang were scrambling Friday to fill up their tanks as gas stations began limiting services or closing amid concerns of a spreading shortage.

The cause of the restrictio­ns were not immediatel­y known, but North Korea relies heavily on China for its fuel supply, and Beijing has reportedly been tightening its sanctions aimed at getting Pyongyang to abandon its developmen­t of nuclear weapons.
