As described above the tanker drivers have gone on strike for 4 days.Do you agree with this or is it going to cause more concern for the car driver who firstly have to endure fuel rises and now maybe fuel shortage.
Hundreds of fuel tanker drivers have begun a four-day strike in a row over pay, picketing Shell sites across the UK.
The industrial action began after talks between the Unite union and managers from two firms which deliver fuel to Shell garages broke down amid fears it could cause petrol shortages.
Striking tanker drivers mounted picket lines at a number of Shell sites based at oil terminals including Stanlow in Merseyside, Avonmouth, Plymouth, Pembroke, Cardiff, Kingsbury, Basildon, Grangemouth, Aberdeen, Inverness, Jarrow and a small site at Luton Airport.
The strike will affect one in 10 of Britain's 9,500 filling stations, but the Government and the oil and transport industries have urged motorists not to panic-buy fuel.
Prime Minister Gordon Brown refused to rule out calling in the Army to keep fuel flowing, warning that the Government was willing to do "everything we can" to stop petrol pumps running dry.
Union leaders warned fuel would start to run out "almost immediately" and all Shell's forecourts would be affected within 24 hours.
But the UK Petrol Industry Association (UKPIA), which represents oil refiners, told the BBC stocks at forecourts across the UK were at normal levels and most garages would have around four days of supplies.
