LONDON, SEPTEMBER 27 – Faced with the persistent queues at distributors in Great Britain in the so-called petrol crisis, triggered by the shortage of hauliers but aggravated by the rush to fill the tanks fearing a rationing, the government is running for cover and is about to suspend the competition law. The aim is to be able to refuel in a more targeted way the service stations that have run out of fuels. According to the BBC website, this initiative makes it easier for companies to share information and prioritize the parts of the country most affected by the problem. According to some media in the Kingdom, the Tory executive would be closer and closer to involving the army to drive the tankers and thus try to overcome the shortage of drivers of heavy vehicles. The data released by the Petrol Retailers Association (Pra) are alarming: about two thirds of the almost 5,500 independent stores are out of gas, and the rest are “partially dry and soon running out”. There are over 8,000 filling stations in the UK, independent or within large chains. The distributors managed by the Asda supermarkets have started forms of rationing: each motorist can refuel for a maximum of 30 pounds. (HANDLE).
