BP /zigman2/quotes/207305210/composite BP +0.50% /zigman2/quotes/202286639/delayed UK:BP +0.14% may ration gasoline deliveries to its 1,200 gas stations in the U.K. due to a truck driver shortage, U.K. broadcaster ITV reported . While the company was hopeful fuel stocks at forecourts will stabilise and start to rebuild at some point in October, the report quoted BP's head of U.K. retail as saying: "We are are expecting the next few weeks to be really, really difficult." In a emailed statement, BP said it was "experiencing fuel supplies at some" retail sites, with a handful temporarily closed due to lack of unleaded and diesel grades. "These have been caused by delays in the supply chain, which has been impacted by industry-wide driver shortages across the U.K. and we are working hard to address this issue," it said.
