Next there will be a shortage of fuel filters.

When the stations tanks get really really low and then are refilled it kicks up all the sludge that's been collecting down in there for years. Which then gets pumped out into your vehicle and into your filter.

My dad would never buy gas when he saw the tanker truck unloading.

Everyone here in N. GA. and W. NC. are running out and pumping all the stations dry. As soon as they get a truck in the lines start. It's just like trying to buy a gallon of milk or a loaf of bread when a little snow comes in. People panic all the time. My DW works a Lowes and they sold a lot of gas containers yesterday. Go figure!

Both gas and diesel here in SE GA has remained the same for months. Walmart [Murphy Gas] has been at $2.29 and other stations at $2.39. Knock on wood! I carry 86 gallons in my Silverado with a range of about 1,600 miles not towing. I buy when the prices are down. I also have 100-gallon diesel and 100-gallon gas tanks at home for emergencies. I live in a hurricane zone and know first-hand what it is like to be without either. No gas, no generator. No diesel, no transportation. Been there, done that.

I just posted info at "On the road/travel chat/Eastern". Gas prices here in Albany, Ga. have shot up the last 24 hours from $1.94 to $2.30 with some stations out of gas. I feel lucky this morning while running an errand I decided to stop at a Wal-Mart/Murphy station and filled up at $2.05. No more than two hours later we had to run somewhere and that same station was at $2.30. It's going to get worse.

Almost no places selling gas in Rutherford County area of NC this morning. Finally found a very crowded BP and got enough to get home.

In north metro Atlanta the first 4 gas stations I saw this morning had no gas. A QT had just been resupplied, it was out yesterday, and was selling all grades. I paid $2.399 a gallon for regular unleaded.

Finally "newsworthy", mainstream media is now carrying the story.
