Bob don't...lol

We changed from unleaded fuel car to diesel. If it was me filling it I would have been on autopilot and completely knackered the engine!

I went into our local supermarket today and someone in the queue had been to Morrisons earlier and said they had security on the doors and at the petrol pumps to stop people panic buying.........................................Isn't putting security in place a sign of them starting the panic and not the consumers ??

OH was saying that news reports said 'do not panic buy' so what does everyone do (especially here in rural areas) - panic buy!

Haven't looked yet to see how much food prices have risen due to the increased transportation costs but I am pretty sure there will be profiteering as they have an instant excuse!

We had to fill ours for the same reason (petrol) and it cost £38 for about a half tank full. That means that it cost us £38 to go up to Evesham and then down to Winchester and back last weekend. Not so long ago we could almost fill the tank for that.
