Greece out of gas
Most of Greece's filling stations have run out of petrol. After visiting ten or so this morning I couldn't find a single one that had anything other than diesel. As a result I had to cancel some lessons as I didn't want to be stranded in the middle of nowhere with no petrol. The problem stems from a tanker driver's strike which has been going on for the last week or so. I 'm not sure what people are going to do from tomorrow onwards as supplies dwindle even further.
