NAPLES, Italy — Rumors circulated by gas station attendants warning of a second trucker strike have been quashed by union officials.

The rumors had led to speculation of more gas shortages in stations around Naples.

“There is no planned truck strike. The strike is over,” said Marta Farfarelli, a spokeswoman with one of the unions, CNA Fita.

Yet several gas station attendants on Monday, from Pianura to Capodichino to Nola, said they had heard rumors of another trucker strike that was to begin Tuesday and last several days.

“We are ordering more fuel and stocking up so people won’t be left on foot,” said attendant Ferdinando Trezza at the API station along the SS7 near Nola. Last week’s national three-day trucker strike left a majority of Italy’s gas stations dry and is said to have cost businesses millions of euros in lost work and products.
