World's longest fuel queue

Taxi drivers in a Chinese city are complaining that they are having to queue for miles to refuel their cars.

Cabbies in Chongqing can use either petrol or natural gas but they prefer to use natural gas as it is much cheaper.

But a cold weather snap has led to shortages with production falling and more people using gas to heat their homes.

Queues at the local natural gas station at Rongqiao are going back miles - with yellow cabs snaking all of the way around the double loop of a flyover and beyond.

A spokesman for the Chongqing Natural Gas Group told Xinhua Net: "We are doing what we can to solve the problem by increasing production.

"In the meantime, I'm afraid the taxi drivers will just have to wait patiently if they want natural gas."
