I read today that thanks to Putin the price of fuel could rise to £2 per litre. That could be the cause.....Maybe. :cry:

If you made a living driving you'd be filling up too I suspect. As for the toilet-paper-eaters, they deserve all they get.

But panic buying causes shortages..

It's nothing to do with Putin, it's the oil traders, in cahoots with Arabs, are making obscene opportunistic profits.

The supply of oil need be no different today than it was 20 years ago but the Arabs are deliberately reducing the amount of oil they pump.

Yes that's what I mean, speculative opportunistic price increases that aren't connected to the amount of oil that's available.

It's precisely the same as when a £1 handwash was being sold for £10 during the first wave of the Covid 19 pandemic in April 2020.

Came back from the Hairy Ones's walk the long way this morning, past 3 garages. No waiting in line at any of them in fact one forecourt was empty. :clap:
