I have to honestly say I have never seen anything like it before… we are literally running out of GAS! Passing gas station after gas station and the pumps are dry. The easiest way to tell if a gas station has gas is by the lines of cars waiting to get to the pump. So essentially we have gone from shopping around for the best price to just paying any price to have it.
This situation started a few days after Hurricane Ike hit the United States. We have been told that a fuel pipeline that supplies much of the southeast was shut down during the storm and the gas is flowing back to Charlotte at the rate of four miles an hour.
Industry experts are predicting that the problem should be resolved in about a week. I can honestly say that experiencing this brings new meaning to shopping on line for housing!
