On the day immediately following BP’s advice, visits to the nation’s filling stations spiked 12% on Weekday, September 24th. This increased demand led to long queues at petrol stations, fuel running out and petrol station closures. This has led to a 22% fall in drivers filling up as the supply chain seeks to recover the situation.
