Bet the fuel prices go up


That's one fair-sized fire they've got there.

Fair to say some fuels definately gone up there!
I think I'll fill me tanks now, Both are nearing empty so would be a shame
to have to pay 5p more a litre for what I can get today. Full tank of fuel
should last around 6 months in the Disco. Laguna yet to be gased.

I wonder what Gordon's excuse will be for taking his cut. "Protecting
fuel supplies for the public", no doubt.

Yes, Aviation Fuel. It's an aviation fuel depot.
So the only problems with Petrol/Diesel supply will be the shut roads and
idiots panic buying. No reason for any price hike at all.

thats true enough Bob unless you vector in several other factors
Profiteering by the oil companies
Panic on the stock exchange when the Henries arrive monday morning having
seen queues at petrol stations thinking they have hot info watch the crude
oil prices hike.
and as you say granny buying those folk who use a tank a month will be
brimming them as we speak
btw I was down to about a 1/4 so I did what Lee did and topped up don't want
a nasty surprise tomorrow AM when I'm down on the red

current price is 85.9 unleaded

In the big scheme of things the amount of fuel that has been lost is a
drop in the ocean. The infrastructure damage is another matter, there
may well be short term shortages in the area previously served from
that depot but it shouldn't be long before they can transport in from
other depots. Of course the laws of supply and demand will kick in and
I wouldn't be surprised to see the price in the affected delivery area
rise. But if prices rise in this part of the country it's pure
profiteering.

At that level of useage I wouldn't worry about it. I fill up, well 60
to 70l or 400+ miles every 10 days or so...

Yeah true enough, Even the vapours that are in there should keep me going
another 3 weeks for the start up prior to it switching to gas.

Given Dereks predictions last time around when there was fuel "issue" there
will no doubt be panic buying shortages, followed by a price hike, followed
by petrol cheaper than before once the forecourts can't shift the stuff for
a week or two cos everyones full again. Time will tell as they say.
