'Please calm down, it's so unnecessary' - Petrol station manager's plea to Crawley motorists
A petrol station manager has asked Crawley motorists to 'calm down'.
The manager, who did not want to be named or identified, said it had been a crazy few days and said it was 'unnecessary' to panic buy.
Motorists have been queuing at the pumps since Friday after reports there is a shortage of drivers to deliver fuel to forecourts.
A lot of forecourts in Crawley have had deliveries today but long queues have seen diesel and E5 and E10 run low in some.
But the petrol station manager said: "We have had a delivery over the weekend but who knows how long it will last," and in a plea to motorists they added: "Please calm down, it's so unnecessary.
"There is not shortage of fuel."
