London. The British government is reportedly considering appointing an army to provide petrol stations to alleviate supply disruptions caused by a shortage of truck drivers.

Brian Maderson, president of the British Retail Petrol Dealers Association, said the military was training its employees to drive tankers.

However, the government said it “did not plan to stop the army at this time.”

Ruby McGregor-Smith, president of the British Confederation of Industry, said the government’s announcement was “like pouring a little water on the fire.”

European truck drivers do not believe that many drivers want to come to the UK for such a short time.

“The only reason we don’t have gas at gas stations is because people buy unwanted gas,” said Environment Minister George Eustis. The minister added that the government did not plan to “send troops to carry out transport at this time”.
