Petrol Strike Uk  -  New Ways to Make Money

It's that time again for anyone living in the same country as me - as sure as clockwork the petrol strike UK has returned to give birth to a mass panic at every petrol station in the country. This time things are a little different, the politicians have been accused of causing 'panic buying' and the government is looking a little unsteady with it's responses. I'm writing this article to highlight the need for most people to earn extra money every week to try and keep up with the ever-changing economy.

This particular petrol strike UK jumped into my lap last night as I drove to another night shift and realized I was struggling with the amount of petrol I had left in the tank - time to pull over and fill up! The sight that greeted me at the petrol station was nothing short as shocking. I don't exactly live in an urban area - I live in a rural fishing village in South Wales.

The line of cars at each pump was at least eight cars deep. I didn't fill up, even with the petrol strike UK looming. I filled half way and paid a small fortune for it. I couldn't help but think about how much money people in particular jobs spend on petrol a day - it must be shocking. The last few years I have been trying out various new ways to make money as a defense against the demonic economy and I am so glad I have been.

The new petrol strike UK has only highlighted matters for me, things have been in a downward spiral for quite some time now for a lot of people. For example, I have a handful of friends ( who are in relationships where both work full time ) who actually miss certain meals to make sure their children get all the correct daily nourishment they need.

This new petrol strike UK is reportedly down to money yet again and you cannot blame the workers involved - everyone needs extra money at the moment. Anticipating a strike they describe as "completely wrong", UK ministers had called for motorists to keep their cars "topped up" but urged people not to queue. How can people not queue - money is tight and we all need to get to work to keep the money coming in.

I use some online methods to bring in extra every month in an attempt to 'keep up with the Jones's' and I'm so glad I do. Times are hard and this new petrol strike UK offers us a mass of new reasons to make a little extra if possible and find ways to create more income. I hope the newspapers are right and this is just a panic buy scheme to make extra tax related money from petrol but I'm not so sure - time will tell.

only just. The strike seems to be averted but the price is stationary. UK fuel is showing no sign of getting any cheaper unfortunately

I see this was written a few months ago. How are things now? I'm surprised this is the first I've seen this as I was unaware of this problem in the UK. Please provide an update and I hope things have gotten better.
