im in NC and i guess ppl are freakin out and i cant even get gas and im almost out. its rediculous. gas stations that recieved gas this morning are already out and its only ben about 5-6 hours since they got some.
That's great, walking is very good for you.
man, seeing stuff like this makes me glad i'm tradin' the car up for a motorbike. i'll be coastin' 100 miles on a gallon. WHOO!
I'm in NC as well. I hate it when people panic, it really brings out the stupid. We drive slow as hell in the rain, yet most seem to drive 5 over the speed limit during snow and ice.
So glad I've got enough in the tank for another week. I don't want to deal with this madness.

It's idiots freaking out over some email rumor and creating the gas shortage by "stocking up"
It happened in Tennessee last week
Give it a couple days and the gas will be back, there's no genuine shortage
I'd argue there is a shortage due to this "I have to fill up when I get to 3/4's of a tank!" in cities like Atlanta or Charlotte.
In the end - I'd look for a station that is owned by one of the supermajor oil companies. I know we are supplying our stations - the extra mogas goes to the off-brand stations that don't have refineries (Race Trac). When there is a shortage - they are the first to get squeezed.
It will be a few days until the Colonial Pipeline is back pumping more gas, but will take some time after that to refill the terminals and the stations.
Just be patient. This isn't the 1973 Arab oil embargo - this is Ike knocking out power to refineries.
yea its for real. im in charlotte and im sure its due to people filling up and topping off everyone was freakin im sure. i mean i drove with my gas light on to work and back and i was surely gunna run out but i use to work at a gas station and my cousin and step uncle work there and they let me fill up last night. they only have gas for employees but i got some :] now i have 3/4s a tank for my 03 gti 1.8t 20th ann. i love my car. im sure a bike would be fun but....really love turbo cars :] i gave a bike a run for his money the other day not sure wat it was but he wasn gettin away from me too fast (yes racing) i get around 23-26mpg which isnt bad. depends on how aggresive i drive
gas shortage whats that? I can name 100 stations who are always fully stocked with fuel
Ya but do the same to a v8. You gotta play fair, boost the I4 then boost the v8.
