We're not going to run out of fuel in 40 days. The story is that Aus has 40 days of fuel reserves if things go to sh*t with say China, and we can't get or have disrupted supply from OS. In actual fact, I reckon we would be in trouble well before 40 days if things went south.

Water is the most essential element of life, because without water you can’t go fishing. :water:

Why do we only have such a low reserve?
Doesnt the government have a duty of care.to the population to make sure we.have enough supply if supply from.overseas is restricted that we can survive for less then 10% of the year.
Kinda stupid isnt it

Because we've closed most of our own refineries cause it's cheaper to have it refined overseas apparently.

Mate, the govt whether Labor or Lib have sold Australians down the river for years. We make nothing but noise these days....it is a national disgrace. Essential services are called that for a reason......and when fuel stops in a country as big and reliant on transport as Australia, so does the delivery of food, medicine, defence capability, etc etc. The dickheads are doing a refinery act with power stations at the moment, closing them down before alternate sources of reliable power are on line or even a distant dream.
