In Bicester we're seeing all the effects you'd expect to get from industrial action without any sign of the strike yet. The manager at one of Bicester's petrol stations thinks he is going to be down to one pump within the next few hours.
His petrol station is the only one in Bicester that actually has all fuels available this morning and he says he is on a priority list for another delivery but won't be getting any fuel again until Monday. So you can see what the problem is.
When you turn up at other petrol stations the cones are out, the signs are up and the locks are on the pumps and it really is a problem that has spread right the way across the country. The government is going to be sitting down with hauliers to decide what to do if the strike actually happens.
Motorists have been ignoring calls not to panic buy fuel prompting shortages and queues at petrol forecourts across the country.
Petrol operators around the country have attempted to weather the latest fuel crisis, by means of hiking up prices in some areas.
