There is to be a "fuel protest" in the U.K. starting tomorrow, where a bunch of hauliers attempt to blockade fuel depots so that petrol runs out and the Government then has to give in and reduce fuel duty to offset some of the high cost of fuel caused by an increasing oil price.
This in turn is leading to people "panic buying" fuel, which in turn has caused a shortage in some areas, which the media has picked up on and reported causing more panic.
Even mentioning using less fuel as a solution will get you lynched as fast as suggesting that the way to avoid being photographed by a speed camera is to not speed, so I won't do that.
As usual I'm feeling a bit left out of this one. I wonder if I could panic buy some Go bars or bananas so I can get into the spirit of the occasion? Though the upside is that last time this happened after a few days the roads were nice and clear to cycle along.
