An agreement has been reached between the union representing Shell tanker drivers and their employers.
The agreement means a second four-day strike due to start in two days has been called off.
While no details of the agreement have been announced, it is believed a pay rise above that originally offered was accepted by the drivers.
A four-day strike, which ended earlier this week, caused problems for many drivers who were unable to re-fuel their cars.
However, predictions of panic buying and forecourt closures proved, on the whole, to have been unfounded.
