NO GAS ..It's like the 70's all over again
I don't know about where you all live but the Charlotte NC area is in the middle of a HUGE gasoline shortage. It's just like the Energy crunch in the 1970's. There are high prices, long lines, people breaking out into fights, and there will not be any relief for a week at least according to officials. From what I hear our part of the country is the only place feeling this crunch and it's due to Hurricane Ike shutting down production. I have always said that I never want to live anywhere else (and still don't) but I have finally found one downside to living here.... We are at the end of the pipeline that supplies gasoline from the Gulf of Mexico refineries. Oh well... Wish us luck that we will be able to make it through the weekend.
