Petrol...lack of

I went for a drive in the Scoob tonight and the local Shell was closed, so went to the next one and only V-power was left.

Time to fill ya tanks or you might be caught short for the weekend.

I noticed on the stv news at 8.20 tonight the petrol lorry drivers have voted to strike, not sure when it starts though.....

So I filled up at the local shell and they charged me 1.469 per liter.....

Glad I filled up earlier in the week, local Shell has no V-power left.

It's because of all the sheep muppets. Strike is not even confirmed yet and even if it is its a 7 days notice period before 1st action.

Exactly that. Scary thing, when I explained what happens with petrol and a nearby naked flame to my wife, she had no idea. She does now. Phew!

There you go.

That's exactly what the problem is.

If I trusted your advice my tank would have been dry this weekend. The closest three Shell stations are all out of V-Power since Friday.

The problem was the bellend on TV who prompted the panic buying. At that point you can either join in, or get caught short.

Not a bellend, someone who planned a drive this weekend and was able to with a full tank of fuel

This was one of the few times I was glad I needed only Super Unleaded as Jo Public is stupid enough not to buy it as it cost a bit more, but prepared to sit in a que for an hour waiting for unleaded LOL MUPPETS
