Things are getting tough at the pump

"There's been too much violence!"

After going by several Gainesville gas stations, only to discover that they had plastic bags over their pump handles, I found one station that had about half their pumps working. The place was swarmed with cars, those at the pumps, and those circling the pumps, waiting for an opening. I finally got in and filled my tank, as well as my 2.5 Gal container, in preparation for the coming apocalypse.

  • Wow. No shortages here at all. Price of gas has dropped about 25 cents in the last month, too. We're paying about $3.70 a gallon.

  • We are short here as well. Nashville that is. I waited 40 minutes for gas. The police do drive-bys to make sure violence and tempers are kept at bay.

    The apocalypse starts here....

  • bridgett, we have a federally mandated, low pollution blend of gas; that's why we are out. The governor just got a temporary waiver from the feds to try to get us some gas.
