    to wave at the queue of Range Rovers queueing at the petrol station on Monday morning if the 'fuel shortage' hits. ;)

    Phew!

    From the title, I thought you were gonna tell us there's gonna be a force 10 gale blowing on Monday and we'll all need extra carbs.

    Don't go around scaring people like that, man!

    We have queues here already. I can understand the 'essential' users feeling they must have fuel, but as for the rest, well... tell people there's no need to panic and what's the first thing they do?

    Predictable or what?

    I don't need any fuel, although did put some in yesterday as I had none - £30 should last me at least 6-8 weeks !!!

    Must go through £2-£3 worth of bananas a week - 3 per day ! So I'll revise my figures (hopefully no banana shortages).....

    I put £40 in the other day and it only filled 3/4 of the tank up. I was disgusted, I remember a time when £35 filled the entire tank of my little Corsa!!!
    I'm going to be doing a lot of cycling regardless of the weather I think!

    There will probably be more cars on the road as they chase around trying to find garages that still have petrol for sale!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A Fiver's worth used to get half a tank easy, it was a bit shocking when it broke the 75p per Gallon mark.
