The fishermen of Pedernales deplore this situation, pointing out that part of their boats and other equipment are at a standstill, for lack of fuel because the service stations sell fuel in priority to Haitians at higher prices, who supply them then the black market in Haiti...

Motorcycle taxis believe that the lack of authority [HL : or corrupt authorities] is at the root of this situation in the service stations to the point of provoking violence between the citizens of Pedernales and Anse-à-Pitre who usually live in good neighborhood...
