Haiti: banks announce partial closure
The Professional Association of Banks announcing that a shortage of petroleum is forcing institutions to cut their hours and days as dozens of gas stations across Port-au-Prince, remain closed.
The association said Friday that starting next week, banks will operate only three days a week instead of the usual six and will close in the early afternoon.
Long lines, fights and boisterous crowds formed earlier this week around a handful of gas stations that were still operating.
Motorcycle drivers, business owners and even police officers have been forced to search for fuel.
