Fuel situation in UK is 'stabilizing' - minister

The situation regarding the fuel shortages in the United Kingdom was "difficult," but is now "stabilizing," British Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng (pictured) noted on Wednesday.

In an interview with BBC, Kwarteng announced that some 150 drivers will be made available by the UK troops "in the next couple of days" in order to make up for the shortage of workforce amid fuel distributors.

"We've seen large queues but I think the situation is stabilizing. We're getting petrol into the forecourts and yesterday that was matched by the sales," he concluded.
