What is going on with fuel at the moment?

Good question... and not one that just concerns fuel but the whole HGV industry. Obviously it has been highlighted through the panic buying of fuel and put a huge amount of pressure on the supply network. The fact is, there is not a shortage of fuel, but a shortage of HGV drivers, and a fuel delivery driver needs to have various qualifications to drop the fuel so it's more difficult to recruit. That combined with the panic buying has meant whilst we are getting deliveries, they aren't as quickly as we need. We'll keep ordering and try and keep on top of it, and whilst things have settled, the issue may well be around for a while yet.
