    As the instability in Egypt continues, people in neighbouring Gaza have been buying fuel in panic.

    Almost everyone in the territory uses cheap fuel smuggled from Egypt.

    And while the Hamas-led government insists Gaza will not run out of fuel, it has not stopped long queues forming at petrol stations.
