Potential Petrol Strike

Post  Moderator on Fri Mar 30, 2012 2:15 am

Well I've just rode home from work and every single petrol station had queues spilling out onto the roads with people trying to stock up on fuel Shocked

To my understanding they haven't even announced a petrol strike yet but because of the panic buying, many stations are shut because they are dry.

Luckily I've got a nice full tank on my bike (about a fivers worth) which should last me over a week but I'll go and fill up the jerry can later so I'm prepared for travelling to work just incase it all goes tits up

Luckily I live near local amenities but hopefully the government and drivers come to some agreement because local businesses, fire brigades, ambulances etc could be effected by the panic buying.

It'll be interesting to hear people opinions and thoughts on the whole situation Smile

I refuelled on Tuesday at my local Tesco, and there was no problem at all. Straight in and out! Then our beloved leader, (call me Dave) Cameron spoke Rolling Eyes

What can you say? Shocked
