Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Fuel crisis: How can shortages be resolved?” – below is their description.

UK oil giants, including BP, Shell and Esso, have come together to insist there is plenty of fuel at refineries and terminals.

So does that mean panic over, or are there deeper issues behind the current crisis?
