In every war, there are casualties. Fortunately, in this one no lives will be lost.
The impact will be felt by the business owners of the service stations that will see gradual but steady reductions in fuel revenue and as a consequence of shop and retail revenue.
For the period of the war anyway, those business owners will need to ensure that plans are in place to cover cash shortfalls due to declining revenue.
The options may be to slow staff shifts and because staff won’t be travelling as much, number of staff on shift could be reduced and thus operating costs lowered – with the proviso that once the war is over, all normal operating costs are resumed.
Plus , this period will be a major inconvenience to many of us as it will disrupt our daily routines, will influence how far we travel and force us to using lift clubs to cut our demand as much as possible.
Remember, this is JUST temporary and it’s for the good of everyone in our country.
As each rifle matters in a battle, each soldier matters in an army.
We are the soldiers and each of us matter in the victory.
