People went into a frenzy here about getting gas and how our supply would be effected by this hurricane...weeeeeell it sure was by US!!!
TWO weeks ago we have had our gas almost close to being rationed out to us and lots of price gouging at the pump!!
And I maintain that our local community (for the most part) caused this large imbalance of supply and demand. Did it to ourselves!! Shish.....
The pic above was the line I waited in on Saturday to get gas...not bad at all considering what I have seen all across town! Only waited a smooth 15-20 minutes for it, and that was short!!

Yes folks have even been getting indignant in some cases over getting gas, hence the blue suits coming out to regulate at the pump lines!And others have been severely impacted by this self-imposed gas shortage by not being able to get to work, and having a terrible domino affect on them maintaining their livelihood.
Folks were even being pushed into the gas station b/c they ran out while waiting!!
Thank goodness I have had the foresight and resources not to wait that long.
Someone asked me a few blog posts ago about the gas situation here and how much we were paying since they have been hearing about it on national newsThat is pretty good here, as anywhere at any moment you could be paying as much as $4.19 for the lowest grade. And the higher octane for the luxury cars are the most priceless commodity.
I hear that Atlanta and Nashville are having the same gas issues too.

But I am not & have not worried about it, as I truly know GOD has everything under control!
