Britain faces supply problems.
London, Bratislava. It was the summer of 2000, and rising oil prices in world markets indicated that petrol prices were already rising in the UK.
Despite urging carriers, Prime Minister Tony Blair’s government has refused to reduce fuel taxes. Protests erupted in September. Trucks blocked roads and restricted the range of goods.
People started buying fuel in advance, selling as much as usual in three days a week. Many closed the pumps because there was nothing to sell.
The health system they declared a state of emergency was also in trouble.
People panicked in stores, started hoarding, and in some supermarkets began to control the amount of basic food they sold to a customer.
