Fuel Panic Continues in Britain

Telegraph:

The Government’s attempt to calm worried motorists appeared to have had little effect on Saturday as the country endured a third day of panic buying at the pumps.

Thousands of drivers across the country continued to rush to forecourts to fill up their petrol tanks, ignoring pleas for restraint from ministers.

The AA reported fresh incidents of motorists using “desperate and dangerous” attempts to store petrol although panic buying was said to be receding.

One woman tried to fill two one-gallon glass flagons with petrol at a station in South Wales. The pump nozzle was bigger than the neck of the flagon and she spilt petrol on the ground.

Queues were particularly bad in Coventry and Liverpool, where motorists at BP stations waited for up to an hour to fill up their tank.

Edmund King, AA president urged calm and advised drivers to revert to their normal fuel buying patterns.
