    I don't think David Cameron made himself clear. What he should have said was if you are almost empty to fill to the top, as normal. I actually work in a petrol station and it seems the people who are coming in who generally need fuel aren't the problem, it those who come in to put £10-15 in, these people are the people causing the queues. I think people should try to fill up as they usually do. I appreciate some people are on a budget but you have to look at the bigger picture. Use your vehicle as normal and don't empty garages because there 'may' be a strike. Don't forget they have to give 7 days. After this period is when you want to be full.

    Shame on the David Cameron and his cronies for creating a completely unnecessary fuel shortage in Bracknell and the rest of the UK. The comments passed by our so called leaders really plunged the depths of political mire. What do they think they are doing!!!!
