Petrol stations in the United Kingdom have been forced to close following a nationwide shortage of Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) drivers left without supplies.
British Petroleum Company plc said on Thursday, September 23, 2021, that up to 100 of its forecourts were short of at least one grade of fuel, with several forced to close entirely because of a lack of deliveries.
According to Esso a petrol and diesel service station, a handful of its petrol stations operating alongside Tesco Express stores were affected, while some of the supermarket chain’s own-branded sites were also suffering outages.
Queues formed at some petrol stations in London and Kent on Friday as motorists rushed to fill up.
