    The station next to my office was out of gas leaving work yesterday. Every station I passed had lines out to the road. I decided this morning I was going to work from home. I tell my boss and he cracked some joke about me being scared. No fucker. I’m trying to not contribute to the problem since I can do my work from anywhere. Fucking boomers.

    Lol his inbred ass is quite literally the kind of guy who contributed to this panic buying. This problem will get solved quicker the less people use their cars for commutes over the next week.

    Always cut your gasoline with corn alcohol for a 15%+ supply boost.

    I too lived in midtown then and ice skated (in my shoes) from my apt to the vortex then to taco mac and finished off at whatever the place was called on the corner of 10th and Piedmont at the time. It was such a fun 24 hours.

    he runs the gasbuddy app. people report through the app if a place is out of gas. its not perfect but probably does a decent job capturing most of the outages

    I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen gas without ethanol in Atlanta. I think ethanol-free gas is the exception rather than the norm at this point.

    Florida gets its gas from ports. Not a cross country pipeline

    There's one or two out around here, but shouldn't be any widespread events.

    I haven’t filled up but I took my wife’s car this am. Both lines were going the same direction out to way down the road. I came in from the other entrance and pulled into a spot immediately. Pumped the gas and out in 10 minutes.

    I am surrounded by idiots. I’m going to move again. Fuck.

    The vast majority won’t take medicine to help them and their families not get sick and possibly die. They can’t even not go to a fast food restaurant for a couple of weeks without throwing shit fits. Americans wouldn’t make it a month.

    I can attest that it was bad. A bunch of people died, including children. But our politicians reacted quickly to the deficiencies and just passed a law banning vegetable burgers from having the word "meat" in their name
