Don't know what all the fuss is about...all the petrol stations I've driven
past over the past couple of days have no queues. And I filled up this
morning (car was actually empty, and am going to London later this week) at
94.9p, which is one of the cheapest in the area.

Last night round here every petrol station had huge queues. Yet to
attempt to buy any today.
My car is empty (i decided i'd rather get home yesterday that sit in a
queue for hours and risk running out in a queue), and I have half a
tank in the landy.
Am kind of looking forward to the world grinding to a halt like last
time. I thought it was much nicer with less traffic!

Oddly, the expensive ones here seem to have large queues, and the
cheaper ones seem to have just a couple of cars on the forecourt (and
no closed signs).

94.9p is the unleaded price around here at all the Petrol Stations, there
are queues and some stations have sold out but I filled up this morning with
only two cars in front of me, couple of decent journeys to do later this
week so it's a concern. Seen Diesel at 99.9p in some stations but 96.9p
seems more normal.

still no queues today. But I did go and fill the motors up. The minibus
was due filling anyway, the LR was more of a "just in case" for next weekend
when I'm planning on taking it down to sarf whales. This weekend nothing
much planned.
