Where's the Petrol in Pendle?

19 Sep 2000

Most stations with petrol, though there seems to have been a rumor about another blockade which has prompted some panic buying, hence the greater length of queues!  The rumor seems to be completely unfounded but may be based on the news that the government is trying to force the oil companies and tanker drivers to take full responsibility for deliveries next time and is making noises that it will not change the taxation in the November budget.

18 Sep 2000

Things seem to be getting back to normal, except for the queues at some petrol stations.  Yesterday was a similar story (though there was less traffic about).

16 Sep 2000

Updates started: 1930 (7:30pm)
Last update time: 1930 (7:30pm)

Texaco garage, Manchester Road, Nelson

1930:  Closed.  There is a tanker there refilling the station so it should be open later tonight.

Colne Way (Pendle View) garage, Manchester Road, Brierfield - Rip Off Alert

1930: No queues, no traffic problems, approach from the Nelson end.  They are now selling unleaded & diesel at 89.9p (9 or 10p/l above the rest of the garages in the area).  Yesterday it was 85.9p.  Even the motorway service stations are only selling at 83.9p!  Maybe this is a place to avoid when the crisis is over!
