I do have gas…

Today it took me half an hour to get home. Not bad. At my exit…. it took me half an hour to get gas!!! CRAZY. I would have not stopped for gas, but was running low. The media scare on gas is showing lines all over Atlanta. The AJC just posted: “Gas getting even costlier; lines reported” Sure, I am glad that I am not paying $3+ yet…. but it does seem like it is just around the corner. They also mention the Atlanta Gas Prices website. Which will most likely start seeing a lot more traffic than normal.

After reading yesterdays Adisheh’s post about GAS Shortage I talked to a friend over at Colonial Pipeline Company. But there was no fear in his voice. “Plenty of reserves” … “We should be running in a few days”

Tick Tock Tick Tock…. and the people are already starting to freak a little… While waiting for gas… there were two different verbal fights about cutting in line.

Hope they do get the lines back up soon…. Anyone else seen any Gas craziness?

    All those damn yee-haws getting gas really pisses me off. Yelling at each other, cutting each other off- who do they think they are? Wonder how they will gas up their tractors??

    This kind of price gouging is unconscionable. Some stations have had minor supply disruptions, so prices go up 30 to 50 cents a gallon? Complete horeshit.

    We’re in a pricing spiral, driven mostly by hysteria. Until people calm down and stop rushing the pumps, we all suffer.

    Keep your tank at least half full, and try to drive less. dont panic–not yet. If noone has gas than the streets will be clear to ride our bikes.
