UK not looking at fuel shortage crisis - Shapps

The United Kingdom isn't facing a crisis when it comes to the supply of fuel at the refineries, British Transport Secretary Grant Shapps (pictured) underlined on Friday.

Talking to Sky News, Shapps pointed out that BP plc should "carry on as normal," attributing the company's petrol and diesel deliveries restrictions to the shortage of truck drivers that has been troubling the UK "for the past five years at least."

"Although there are stresses and strains in the system, by and large, it had not impacted on people's everyday life when it came to petrol," he concluded.
