I see petrol prices are hitting an all-time high.

The demand problems caused by thick people panic buying have ended and supplies are back to normal.

Yet the petrol companies are still jacking the prices up. A cynic might suggest that the petrol industry played up the 'shortage' narrative to shift a load of stockpiles they've been sat on due to people travelling less in the pandemic.

A manufactured panic? Who would do such a thing?
