Right........

Objectives : Post a picture of the longest petrol queue you are in/seen over the next few days, so that others can laugh at other peoples stupidity/misfortunes!

Rules : Keep pictures to a suitable size (thumbnail/link etc), State/guess the queuing time and that's about it!

I'll start the ball rolling with this attempt:

Queuing Time: 15 mins

Sorry, no pics as I was too busy trying to get from the inside lane of Scotland Road, Liverpool (3 lanes) to the middle lane and then back into the inside lane, around the queue.

The petrol station is near to the entrance to the Wallasey Tunnel and you need to be in the inside lane or you are off towards the other (old) tunnel! Caused chaos, it did! :angry:

The bodyshop that did my car (pics to follow shortly) was just off Scottie Road, I picked it up on Saturday morning & filled it right up on the way home, no queues at all, if I'm careful that should last me for around 3 weeks.

I havent actually been past a petrol station yet but I've heared they are getting awful already, my mate went earlier on & said he was waiting for about 20 mins, it's getting mad already

Well folks.......was driving so I couldnt take a photo, but my local Texco had around 30-40 car queuing tonight at 11pm!

I think tomorrow is going to be hell.......and thank god I don't need any petrol :D !

Plus I also read in todays paper that as well as rationing petrol......the Gov want to limit the times for petrol stations to be open!

Now what the :censor: is that going to achieve......It will be like trying to get a kebab on a friday night after 1am!

queues queues queues queues queues!

Now there lies the problem....I do need petrol and because I work for a care company (looking after elderly clients in the community) we are issued with passes that enables us to fill our cars up :thumbsup: ;)

Filled up tonight on the way home from picking Anne up.

No queues no waiting no nothing, well there was something------

Optimax £1.00.09per litre :eek:

hehe... well there was a slight queue when i took Skye last night... about 20mins max...

and Optimax was £1.00.9p per litre... last week... but its at 97.9p per litre now... so I filled up slightly happier :P

damn should have got a picture the other day. 42 Cars and 2 motorbikes in the Tesco petrol station, then a queue to the mini roundabout outside tesco, then a queue from the mini roundabout to the big roundabout on the A50, then it went up the slip road a bit as well!

I was one of the bikes in Tescos :(

Only took about 15 mins though, they had two blokes in yellow jackets guiding traffic about

Well I drove past Asda last night... queues back to roundabout... musta been about 30 cars..

I then drove past BP... about 10 or so cars.. cause its awkward to queue there (right on a roundabout)

Then there was the Shell (I was on opposite side of dual carriageway) musta been about 40 cars (gone by the time i had driven around tho...)

Then I drove past Tesco.... and like em said... not a car in sight... mebbe they were empty... I havent a clue.. was weird...

So I drove back round.... joined a much smaller queue for Shell (10 cars mebbe) filled her up with cheaper optimax and then headed off to retail park to take some piccies under the lights...
