What’s the scoop on gas/petrol where y’all are? I’m curious, as Asheville is running out of gas.
I wouldn’t call it a local crisis yet, but it seems perfectly ordinary non-hoarding people here in town are running out of gas and are unable to get to work. There are long lines for gas, a few ugly incidents of tempers flaring as people waited in long lines and plenty of stations completely out of gas.
There’s t.v. and newspaper coverage about the shortage, and the local paper just announced that it’s offering readers cell-phone text updates on what stations in town still have gas to sell.
What are gas prices like where you are? What’s availability like? Please de-lurk yourself and let everybody know.
