Same, both BP stations were closed on Wednesday prior to knowing there were delivery shortages. Google maps locally and news shows the moronic panic buying that's now ensuing.

Some absolute nipples in the media decided to report on the fact a literal handful of petrol stations were closed yesterday due to driver shortages, while saying "We're not saying there's a shortage so don't rush out to panic buy" :rolleyes:

its all the media's fault if they hadn't posted about it we would have hardly be able to notice, now the panic buying is going on. Everyone is jump on and we will have no fuel for weeks. its like the bloody toilet paper shortage all over again

Spent half an hour queuing for fuel in Bideford Asda. I’d not usually want to add to the idiocy, but I’m 250~ miles from home (setting off tomorrow morning) and had 50~ miles of fuel…

I should be ok for a few days, hopefully the local Costco won't get too swamped, given it's a membership thing

Annoyingly, my fuel light is on, and I was planning to fill up tonight so I can drive up to my parents this weekend. Perhaps I wont bother :/
