The manager of one of Plymouth's two main fuel depots has said it could run dry if demand continues at the current rate.
Rob Brailsford, the depot manager for Chevron Texaco at Cattedown says it's "touch and go" if fuel supplies will last until the next shipment arrives at the start of next week. The depot normally supplies between 120 and 130 tankers of fuel a day but this has now risen to around 180.
Queues have continued to build at petrol stations across the south west this morning with drivers saying they're not prepared to take any chances.
There has been panic buying at some garages in the region and a strike hasn't even been called.
A potential strike by tanker drivers has caused speculation that fuel may run out.
