Community finds the humour in the petrol panic

The fuel folly has brought out the funny side in you.

Our community has shared social media gags, silly signs and even a quickly put together graph on the likelihood of finding a person of more advanced years at the front of the petrol pump queues.

Via Twitter, the @EDP24 account has received these gems.

@jgyap57: 'I am currently filling jerry cans with hot sausage rolls and storing them in the garage #panicbuying'

@Bellajahella: 'Have panic bought some roller blades, bike, unicycle, skateboard, wind up jet ski. Just in case.'

At least some people are able to see the funny side amid the craziness of the last few days.
