On 7 April 2008, the Palestinian Gas Station Owners Association stopped collecting fuel from Nahal Oz in protest against the small amounts of fuel that Israel was allowing to enter Gaza.
Subsequently, Israel halted all fuel supplies to Gaza from 10-15 April, after two Israelis were killed by Palestinian militants at the Nahal Oz fuel pipelines. On April 16, Israel resumed supplies of industrial gasoline and cooking gas but not diesel and gasoline.
There are currently 800,000 liters of diesel and 180,000 liters of gasoline in the Palestinian reserves at Nahal Oz which have not been distributed by the gas station owners. These reserves would last less than a day.
