Here's another UK story to go along with the one I posted about pensioners resorting to burning books to stay warm that might interest some out there.

GAS SUPPLIES RUNNING OUT AS BRITAIN SHIVERS


The National Grid yesterday issued only its ­second-ever warning that demand for energy is threatening to outstrip available supplies unless industry quickly slashes its consumption and more gas is rushed in from abroad.

The alert prompted the wholesale cost of gas to rocket by 70 per cent and raised fears that businesses and households could soon be hit by power cuts if the freezing weather persists as forecast for the rest of the month.

More gas has been bought from Norway and Belgium, so panic over....

More media sensationalism, to be honest.
