Fuel shortages and long queues have brought petrol stations to their knees across the country this weekend- and Newport is no exception

South Wales Argus readers shared their frustration on Facebook after a shortage in HGV drivers led to some large queues at a Tesco petrol station in Cardiff over the weekend.

The AA has told drivers not to “fill up outside of their normal routines".

“Even if the occasional petrol station is temporarily closed, others just down the road will be open," it said.

Buy fuel as normal

The UK government continue to urge the public to buy fuel as normal, and to not panic stock.
A Westminister spokeswoman said: “There is no shortage of fuel in the UK, and people should continue to buy fuel as normal.

“We recognise the challenges facing industry and have already taken action to increase the supply of HGV drivers, including streamlining the process for new drivers and increasing the number of driving tests.

“We continue to closely monitor labour supply and work with sector leaders to understand how we can best ease particular pinch points.”
