No Need for Panic!


The day after the Government urged motorists to top-up but not panic-buy the Shell Garage on Dowson Road was seeing a steady stream of cars queuing up.

I'm told the queues at 7am were much longer.

Petrol was priced at 138.9 pence per litre and diesel at 145.9 ppl.

See how it looked 20 minutes earlier and a day later on Hyde DP Xtra.

  1. Read a headline about it at an English newspaper over here. With prices up over here as well, one can await something alike.

    Please have a good new month, week and safe road ahead.

    1. No nothing to do with the date - there was the possibility of a strike by tanker delivery drivers and the government said people should top up in case there was a shortage - the advise itself led to a shortage - the delivery drivers are not going to strike at least this side of Easter.

  4. The increase has been going on here for quite some time I think the people are all immune to it, they don't panic anymore. Have a fabulous week.

    1. It was nothing to do with the price but a preceived lack of future supplies.
