LISBON, Portugal (AP) — Portugal has so far averted a gas crisis with around two-thirds of the country's gas stations well-stocked three days into a strike by tanker truck drivers over pay, the government said Wednesday.

Uncertainty remained, however, as employers said they wouldn't return to the negotiating table while the truckers are on strike, and the truckers' union said it wouldn't end the walkout until negotiations resume.
