The priority petrol stations to be filled can be found on the DTI web site.
I'm in two minds: One one hand I believe that high petrol prices are good news given the current road building programme (I would prefer road narrowing and traffic causing measures, but lower petrol prices. Time is more valuable than money to the people who need to be targetted). On the other hand - important bit - we cannot allow this kind of ransom of the transport infrastructure. But then the fact that the situation has come to this means that there is a lack of mechanism for filtering public opinion to the Government.
This doesn't really affect me because I'm in London. Which is probably the same reason the Government has been caught so far out of touch.
