Hi!But there are fears the 'don't panic' call could make things worse if it simply alerts drivers to possible shortages.
The Downing Street plea comes with diesel prices poised to soar past £6 a gallon. The Russian energy giant Gazprom warned yesterday that crude oil is set to skyrocket to $250 a barrel 'in the forseeable future'.
It peaked last week at a fraction under $140.
The growing crisis increases the pressure on the Prime Minister to abandon a 2p a litre rise in fuel duty scheduled in October. Fuel protesters say many hauliers and farmers will support the tanker drivers.
Q1: 2P =?
Q2: tanker drivers =?
Thanks in advance.
