The situation with fuel at gas stations has begun to improve in Kyiv, and at some gas stations you can now buy fuel without having to queue.
And the CEO of Consulting Group A-95, Serhiy Kuyun, believes that the situation with fuel is definitely improving in the capital.
“The KLO chain has actively joined OKKO and WOG, and AMIC is operating as well,” Kuyun told NV. “(Liquified) gas and diesel can already be found without queues, but you need to look for petrol and then you have to wait in a queue. But there are no queues for petrol (selling) at UAH 69 per 1 liter (Has the maximum been reached?).”
A map with all Kyiv gas stations operating during Russia’s fill-scale invasion has been created by the Kyiv City State Administration, but there is no information on fuel availability.
But thanks to special applications, chats and telegram bots, you can now search for fuel and monitor the queues near gas stations in Kyiv from your smartphone. Here are some of the services:
This bot monitors the availability of fuel at the gas stations of the most common chains in Ukraine and informs subscribers of the name of the gas station, address and type of fuel available.

How to use the bot:
