Hi all, 

Just to let you know panic buying of petrol has returned today where i live,alot of petrol stations sold out and don't know when the next delivery will be. Just what we need right now. Let me know what its like in your area.

They were doing it yesterday by me.  I was tempted to ask them if they had enough bog rolls before the Russians invaded.

Nobody needs bog roll anyway, just water and a wet flannel!

Toilet roll can be helpful for insulation. I've stocked up over the months prior for the simple fact it's an investment to curb inflation. I have also stocked up on clothes, toiletries, food, supplements etc, candles, lighters, wood.

Does anyone know if there is a fuel supply problem in the UK?


I haven't seen anything about this reported in local media, and I haven't heard anyone talking about this either.


There is no fuel supply problem in the UK, last time round it was a small number of filling stations that encountered late deliveries due to a shortage of drivers in one delivery fleet, and it got blown out of all proportion, the resulting 'shortage' was caused by motorists swallowing the fear-porn propaganda and filling up their tanks to the brim, as well as a few jerry-cans for good measure. If everyone had just stuck to their normal routine, there wouldn't have been any issues with supply.
