"The news here is about the UK facing imminent electricity and home heating gas shortages this winter.?"

There is no shortage of these to ANY intents and purposes, Maggie. There is a shortage of fuel at filling stations only in the sense that we haven't got enough delivery drivers to get it there. There is no shortage on these shores of gas, electricity or petrol. There is a risk of rocketing gas prices (not petrol, gas) causing severe difficulties for families and this will have a knock-on effect on electricity prices as many of our power stations are gas-fired. The refineries have more petrol than they know what to do with. It's just that they can't get enough of it to filling stations. So the news suggested by Donuel (at least he inserted his question mark) is not correct. Thank you.
