Pump action - BP prepares for petrol protests
Could the soaring price of petrol become a big election issue?
The price has soared above 120 pence a litre this week, in some cases a lot higher.
I've learnt that BP is quite worried about the possibility of organised protests by angry customers at their garages this weekend.
They've been advising staff in their garages in London and Oxford what to do if trouble erupts outside the pumps.
UPDATE - It seems that this weekend's possible protests at BP garages may be nothing to do with the rising price of petrol, but in opposition to the firm's proposed exploitation of Canadian tar sands.
