No More Gas!

OK, starting today at 7pm in Charlotte area, all gas stations are closing down.

Three of our customers told us that at work today, fortunately I pumped my car full of gas right before I went to work. I though it was a rumor, but on my way from work to home, I pass 4 gas stations, all of them were PACKED, I mean there was a line in the street to get to them. By the time I got to the 4th gas station there was 2 police cars NOT ALLOWING any new car to get in line

They say this will last 7-10 days

All I know is that for the next 7-10 days am going to be looking more at my MPG gage than my speedometer....

I am pretty sure this has something to do with Katrina, but I just got back from work and haven't looked at the news yet....

Can we say:

From GA north, many gas stations are supplied from a pipeline from the gulf port. This line is down due to power out. That's the cause, but it will be back on soon

Yeah, around here prices went up to as much as $4.30 a gallon for regular. Crazy.

I haven't looked into the news yet either. Anyone know what's going on?

The supply from Gulf Port is off for a few days -- pipeline down, refineries down after Katrina. Recovery is soon

I still only had to pay 2.92 tonight for premium which sounds pretty good from what you guys are saying. But all of the pumps at every gas station were totally out of 87 octane gas.

Ok, now am pissed!

Last night my friends and I went out. On our way back from downtown we decide to go get a bit to eat, it was somewhere around 2h30am. We stop at a jack in the box, in front of it was a gas station.

There was I think about 5-6 cop cars parked in it and a group of cops just chealing around...

And in comes in another cop, one of those undercover ones. He drives in, parkes his car at the pump, and start's pumping gas!!!!!

Ummm, I'd rather have those defending the peace with gas than teenagers "hanging out" at 2:30am.

The pipeline should be up in 10 days or less, but the time it will take to get gas up here could last up to another week past that.

Man i feel sorry for you guys. Every station here in Calgary is fine, there is no chance of the pumps being down. I just filled up last night like i normally do and gas was at $1.05/L like its been for the last 2 weeks.
