Anyone else having issues with a supposed petrol "shortage" in the UK. It's mainly down to the lack of drivers to deliver the petrol to the petrol stations but people are currently panic buying so we might actually end up with a shortage.
 
USA seems to be fine, sucks to hear the fear of buying is causing the shortage. I hope that doesn't spread stateside.

how'd i get to be so good?
Not in the UK myself but I have heard about this a couple of times already. Hope it sorts itself out soon, panic buying is ridiculous (and gas of all things is such a bad idea..)

It's ridiculous. There isn't even a shortage -- the media can't say this but the general public are a bunch of morons!

It's actually scary how a petrol shortage was basically created out of nothing. I was lucky enough to get some but there are still periods where the local petrol stations are closed due to not having any left.
