BP is planning to ration fuel deliveries due to supply issues

BP have said in a statement that they are experiencing ‘fuel supply issues’ at some retail sites in the UK.

While there is no lack of fuel in tanks, a shortage of available drivers is making it difficult to maintain supplies moving around the country, ITV News reported.

The famous oil company is said to be struggling to restock pumps as fast as they would usually and is planning to prioritise deliveries to key locations it has been reported.

In a statement, a spokesperson for BP said: “We are experiencing fuel supply issues at some of our retail sites in the UK and unfortunately have therefore seen a handful of sites temporarily close due to a lack of both unleaded and diesel grades.

“These have been caused by delays in the supply chain, which has been impacted by industry-wide driver shortages across the UK and we are working hard to address this issue.

“We continue to work with our haulier supplier to minimise disruption and to ensure efficient and effective deliveries to serve our customers. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
