Over the weekend, I mentioned our neighborhood gas station that was out of fuel. Well, this morning, I encountered more of the same.
The gas station near the office was down to only a few pumps with fuel available. The good news was that the price was the same as I paid over the weekend ($3.799), but for the first time in many, many years, I had to wait in line to fill up. And I found more stations that were devoid of gasoline.
I’ve been corresponding with some folks in Chattanooga, and it looks like the shortage of gas — at least there — is quite real, despite the promises that there’s plenty of gas to go around. And others in east Tennessee are paying almost $5/gal for gas.
I’ve gotta say, I’m getting very nervous about what the next few weeks will hold…
