The filling station in Minehead was out of fuel for some days. Local rumour suggested a cash flow problem rather than any general shortage of fuel.

Other nearby filling stations also ran out briefly, possibly due to extra demand.

Shows how finely adjusted supply is to demand. One small aberration is enough to bugger the whole supply locally. Not a good omen for the upcoming crash.
