Is this the longest fuel queue in the world? Zimbabwe setting unwanted records

Zimbabwe has been struggling to pay foreign suppliers of fuel and other commodities due to its dire financial position which economists say has been worsened by corruption and mismanagement.

The country requires between 120 million and 140 million litres of fuel every month, with diesel making up the bulk of fuel used by industry.

According to the government, Zimbabwe now requires on average US$100 million per month to cater for its fuel imports.
