Long Lines at UK Filling Stations Amid Disruption to Fuel Deliveries

Long lines formed at filling stations across the UK on Sunday, September 26, as what the government described as “supply chain issues” began to affect petrol deliveries.

The BBC reported that a delivery driver shortage was causing the supply problems, which prompted drivers across the UK to fill up, leaving pumps empty in many places, according to the Petrol Retailers Association.

The government announced on September 26 that it was suspending elements of competition law for the fuel industry to “ensure that disruption is minimised as far as possible.”
