Nigel Farage Hit By Van While Looking For Fuel – Fights Break Out Amid UK Fuel Shortage

Nigel Farage, the former leader of the Brexit Party revealed that he was in a car accident while desperately looking for gas amid the UK fuel crisis.

“I went to 7 petrol stations this morning and there was no fuel at any of them,” he said.

“Was then hit by a van whilst stationary at a roundabout. Great start to the day!” It seems Farage is okay – well enough to tweet, anyway.

Meanwhile, he’s not alone in trying to find fuel.

The UK is struggling with a gas shortage this week, due to rising energy prices, temporary disruptions caused by Brexit and the coronavirus pandemic.

The main reason for the shortage seems to be a shortage of truck drivers. Due to Brexit, many foreign drivers were unable to renew their licenses.

A shortage of truck drivers led to a disruption of the gas supply chain, leaving many fuel stations without gas. Then, the panic buying started.

Scenes from the UK mirrored those from the U.S. in May, in the aftermath of the Colonial pipeline attack.

As drivers waited for hours for gas, tensions grew. Videos of fights between motorists surfaced on social media.

One man was even filmed pulling a knife during an argument with another driver.
