...driving past traffic queing for fuel when you've got a brimmed tankful! ;-)
I'm feeling pretty smug as well because I don't have a car
That will change very quickly though if everything starts getting even more expensive as a result!
Baaaaa! Follow the sheep. Must fill up. Baaa! Must fill up...
Ridiculous behaviour from some - causing panic where none required. I'll walk first before queuing!
Double the price until the panic buyers stop cueing!
They'll all just look like prats next week when their tank is still full, the forecourts are empty and the price drops!
There was nothng wrong with the advice. It's just that people are interently stupid, lazy, or both. Baaaa!
I'll bet that half of those queing only use about a tenner's worth a week, but just because they think it's going to be in short supply they feel the need to fill up.
I was in a local Spar shop that has a petrol station attatched and someone was pleading with the owner to let them get some fuel - apparently they hold some unleaded back for the local police. In the end the owner must've given in because he (the owner) was putting some fuel in the guys car when we were leaving.
It's come to something when people are virtually begging - it's like Mad Max out there!
How about an auctioneer on the forecourt - 'for the next 50 litres, who'll start me off at £2 a litre?'
I've seen a couple of posts on Facebook from friends of friends 'panic buying' £15 or £20 of petrol :-?
Wonder how much it would take to persuade David Cameron to say there's a shortage of domain names?
Unite union must be sitting there having a very quiet snigger.
They have the result they wanted without a driver even having to lose a days wage.
