Default Fuel Panic in the UK

I don't know the WHOLE thing but everyone is going crazy over Fuel.Soon as it hit the news that there was going to be strike (think it was the tanker drivers) everyone went crazy, grabbed as many Jerry cans as they could and went and got as much as Fuel as they could.In my town hardly any garages have fuel, the one we normally use is shut down and not getting any till Monday.I needed to refuel too.
Other half was let through as Motorcycle's don't take much to fill up, the rest is for emergency service only. SO other half told me, some guy tried driving his car around the cones that they had set up to stop people getting to the pumps.

Its crazy, the army was (Not sure if they still are) going to step in and drive the tankers.It is mad here.
Lets hope I can find somewhere to refuel the scooter or it will be jumping in the deep end with gears.....not ready yet.

Whats it like for everyone else in the UK?

Yep, I am in the same situation. No garages around me were open yesterday and today I have about 10 miles of fuel left. I am just going to have to wait until the local station has petrol again

Its mad, a lady who stocked up on fuel was doing something with it in her kitchen with the oven on and now has 40% burns :( this is just mad.
I made one trip on the scooter to the chippy but I won't risk it again until I know I can get petrol for it.
Going geared yesterday was scary specially with a new bike in my hands but made it back safely.

No strike and everyone is going mad:(

Don't worry. Whilst the fuel tankers are on strike the military will supply 90% of the uks fuel

The closets time is Monday when the garage we normally go to will get some.So I just hold out till then :)
Least they are still having the military step in, least we know they will fuel gas stations for us.
I was hoping for a better out come with the gear bike but....well it went ok apart from the morning part.Was nice riding the YBR home though even if I was panicky badly.

Well least hope Monday I can refuel the scooter and I was going to sell it this weekend but think I keep it for bit longer till I know Iam 100% with gears.

I don't drive but I think the price of fuel is getting ridiculous, the government is really making a mess of things in my opinion.

Yeah... We may get free healthcare and decent benefits but people forget that it comes at a cost.... A cost that consists of three letters
