Petrol supplies are still not getting to London and south-east England, with more than a fifth of forecourts still dry, retailers have said.
The Petrol Retailers Association (PRA) expressed hope that the Army driving tankers would assist in increasing fuel deliveries.
However, it stated that the “crisis is nearly over in Scotland, the North, and the Midlands.”
Prime Minister Boris Johnson previously stated that supply chain issues could last until Christmas.
“The fuel is still not getting to the pumps that need it the most in London and the South East,” said Brian Madderson, chairman of the PRA.
The PRA, which represents nearly 5,500 of the UK’s 8,000 filling stations, was “disappointed that no concerted action is being taken to address the supply problems” in the South, he said.
However, he stated that there was a “plenty of supply at filling stations” and little queuing in the North.
