Run out of gas

US long-suffering motorists were hit with a double whammy this week - fuel prices hitting a record high, and news that tanker drivers are to strike - which could lead to a fuel shortage.

The proposed strike is more than a week away but already we’re being given dire warnings of chaos at the pumps, as well as advice that we should stock up on fuel by filling jerrycans.

This is all getting too much for me and I’m considering the worst - getting rid of the Bentley and downgrading to a Jag to save cash.
