News this week reports fuel shortages at UK petrol stations due to HGV driver shortages, meaning some petrol stations have closed as they’ve not been able to restock. Car insurance expert at Confused.com Alex Kindred says:

“The news that some petrol stations haven’t been able to restock and the images of long backed up queues may cause drivers some alarm, especially those who reply heavily on their car for the day to day.

“While drivers may be tempted to rush to stock up, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps says there’s “plenty of petrol” to go around. So if you have more than half a tank, there is no need to panic!

“If you are running low, or if your local station has been affected, you can use our petrol price finder to find the next best alternative.”
