We had shortages in supermarkets due to Covid last year as people panic bought – this was world wide.
As you might have heard the UK had problems again with deliveries for food and petrol as due to Brexit there were not enough lorry drivers to deliver goods needed.
Hence we had a petrol shortage. This crises is only in the UK and not related to Covid.
The message that petrol will be short caused of course panic buying, panic filling up with petrol;
The queues were terribly long and caused impossibly many traffic jams.
On my travels, by train of course, I saw this sign in front of a coffee stall.
An inventive selling idea
🙂 We have not lost our humour 🙂
P.S. the situation has improved and there seem to be more petrol again as the Army is now helping out.
