How to find out which gas stations are close to you.
PERMANENT fuel shortages caused by a shortage of tanker drivers are wreaking havoc across the United Kingdom. How can you find out which gas stations are close to you? Despite the government’s claims that the situation is under control, motorists have been photographed queuing for petrol on station forecourts across the United Kingdom. Ministers from the government have been quick to point out that there is no need to panic buy and that there is no scarcity of fuel; rather, the problem stems from supply lines that are being hampered by a driver shortage.
Things are returning to normal, according to Treasury chief secretary Simon Clarke, who spoke to Sky News last week.
“We are presently in a scenario where more fuel is being delivered to petrol stations than is being sold,” he added, adding that the crisis is “completely under control.”
“If consumers just go back to their normal buying habits, that will continue to ease.”
However, motorists across the United Kingdom appear to be seeing a completely different picture than the one painted by the government.
Fuel availability at petrol stations has improved across most of the United Kingdom, but there appear to be ongoing issues in London and the southeast of England.
Last week, violent scenes erupted across major cities as panic buying of petrol coincided with a trucker scarcity.
There have been reports of battles erupting over the pumps, as well as people storing fuel in old water bottles.
Ministers have claimed that the driver shortage is related to Brexit, claiming that workers returned to their home countries in droves following the EU’s leave and the coronavirus outbreak.
While there’s no assurance that any petrol station will have fuel by the time you arrive, a simple traffic app will tell you how awful the lines are around you, which can indicate how much fuel they have.
Waze, the revolutionary software, now has a new feature that tells you how bad the traffic is at nearby gas stations, letting you know if it’s worth the trip.
Additionally, the app shows and color classifies the cheapest gas stations in your area, with green being the least expensive and red being the most expensive.
Apple and Android users can download and use the software for free.
