Queues are beginning to build at petrol stations around Bracknell as drivers stock up amid fears of a strike by tanker drivers.
Forecourts around the borough were packed with drivers and some garages are reporting they are starting to run out.
The Shell garage in Bagshot Road has confirmed it has run out of diesel but has "plenty" of unleaded left.
The BP in Wokingham Road is running low on both petrol and diesel but a delivery is expected later today.
BP in London Road is also low but a delivery is expected later.
A spokesman for BP said while supplies in the garages themselves are running low, there has been no problem with deliveries and one is expected later.
But Shell garage in John Nike Way, Binfield, is currently out of fuel.
A delivery is expected later today but there was no petrol or diesel at the station at around 2.30pm today.
It is not known whether garages in the Sandhurst area are experiencing problems.
