Fuel supplies to filling stations getting back to normal before Easter


3 April 2012     

UKPIA, the trade association representing the main oil refining and marketing companies in the UK that source close to 90% of transport fuels, reports that its members expect fuel deliveries to filling stations to return to normal levels before Easter.

Chris Hunt, Director General, commented: “Supplies of fuel to filling stations are returning to normal in most areas in good time for the Easter break. The sudden surge in demand last week placed strain on the fuel delivery system. Easter is normally a period of higher demand so we would ask that motorists don’t purchase more fuel than they anticipate needing for their immediate needs.”
