Fuel Crisis: latest statement

29/09/2021

Gordon Balmer, PRA Executive Director

“There are early signs that the crisis at pumps is ending, with more of our members reporting that they are now taking further deliveries of fuel. 

“Fuel stocks remain normal at refineries and terminals, although deliveries have been reduced due to the shortage of HGV drivers. 

“We have conducted a survey of our members this morning and only 37% of forecourts have reported being out of fuel today. With regular restocks taking place, this percentage is likely to improve further over the next 24 hours”.

The Petrol Retailers Association (PRA) represents the interests of the independent forecourts across the UK which equates to 65% of the 8,380 total. We work with around 80% of all motorway services areas (MSA).
