(NEWS.YAHOO) — ROME (Reuters) – Naples residents were left stranded at bus stops across Italy’s third biggest city on Wednesday as the public transport operator, hit by government spending cuts, ran out of fuel.

“Due to a lack of fuel our services are not guaranteed,” transport operator ANM announced on its website and at bus stops around the city, enraging commuters.

“Can someone tell me if the C27 is going to show up? I have to get into the center,” Luana Pisano wrote on ANM’s Facebook page. Several residents demanded a refund for their season tickets.
