Petrol deliveries: Supply remains critical in south-east England, say retailers

But the Petrol Retailers Association says driver restraint means the problem is improving nationwide….


Petrol supplies remain critical in London and south-east England with many forecourts still dry, retailers said.

But the Petrol Retailers Association said there was a “distinct improvement” nationwide due to the “restraint” of drivers.

The association’s survey of 1,000 petrol stations found 68% have both grades of fuel available, while 16% have no fuel at all.

The military is due to begin delivering petrol across the UK from Monday.

Speaking to broadcasters on a visit to a hospital in Leeds, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “You need to take all possible precautions but the supplies are getting in, they are getting to the forecourts, but people just need to be going about their business in the normal way.”

He said he understood how “infuriating” it has been for people, but added the situation was stabilising and the problems had been driven by demand rather than supply issues.
