Everything’s running out in Blighty. Gas (as in gas), gas (as in petrol) and everyone’s patience. As far as we can tell, the two crises are unrelated, other than their shared connection to the climate. But crikey moses they are getting people in a tiz, not least because – and brace yourself for some advance economics here – when things run out, things get more expensive.

So in a daredevil move, and with one eye on the oh-christ-this-could-be-dull-ometer, Ol and Dave simultaneously attempt to explain the gas market, geopolitics (please Mr Putin we didn’t mean it), and the psychology of humans queuing for hours for petrol that isn’t running out.

ALSO THIS WEEK, some schadenfreude that we absolutely don’t find funny and categorically do not endorse or condone. At all.
