Atlanta's Gas Shortage

If you don't have a gasoline shortage like we do in Atlanta, be thankful!! :-)

Fistfights are breaking out at gas pumps.... most stations don't even HAVE gas (those that do have lines that stretch around the block... people sometimes wait over an hour to fill up) and today a local police jurisdiction busted two low-lifes for siphoning gasoline from a daycare van. (Now that is LOW....)

Amazing what people will stoop to!

That is crazy. I have plenty here. As a matter of fact our prices just dropped to the lowest they have been in a long time.
Can I ups some up to you?

Those shorts are hilarious. Why don't you have gas? I don't understand. Enlighten me. Please : )

Unbelievable. Sorry to hear that things are getting so ugly out there. You can always come and stay with me. I don't have any room, but we have everything within walking distance... except therapists... but I know one that makes house calls... for my friend.

If you want to smile (butterflies and penguins do that for me) check out the second half of our week long field trip in my latest post:

I don't know all the logistics behind why we don't have gas and other regions do (I don't watch enough news to get to the "bottom" of it all), BUT as of this morning, QT (one of our big gas retailers here) has promised that all their gas stations will have gas by tomorrow.

I am not holding my breath, and will believe it when I see it..... I just got back from running some errands and passed easily 7 or 8 gas stations. NONE had gas. None.

This shortage has been going on since Hurricane Ike hit the Gulf Coast (3 weeks ago?) and has gotten progressively worse.

Really? I hadn't heard anything about this. Why are you suffering when the rest of us seem okay?
