Mainstream MEDIA. Sort of an oxymoron, isn't it.

Does seem an overworked term.

Gas prices don't seem much of an issue when you can't find any at all.

Hit or miss here in the Sandhills. More without than with from my observation. I have a good 400 miles worth in my company car, RV is full for this weekend and my bride has enough to get to and from work, but they better have this mess straightened out by the weekend or it there will be major issues for most businesses come Monday.

Except for the little bit of additives each brand puts into the truck as it rolls, pretty much tells you all brand's are the same, doesn't it?

I had no problems getting gas in Garner NC a few days ago before they announced the not shortage but saw all kinds of stations with bags on the pumps driving home today. Glad my RV has a full tank I can siphon if I need to. I will avoid those lines and prices if at all possible. If they had just stated that the pipeline was down and should be up within a week folks probably wouldn't be out doing their best end of the world impression at every station. This is really going to hurt the trades...

All this talk about no gas, has anyone run across a station with no diesel? Specifically between Charlotte, NC and Savannah, GA? Supposed to head out Thursday morning, wondering if it will be a wise decision.

Carry a few cans of diesel with you as an emergency backup just in case.

Diesel runs in a different smaller pipeline and not the one that leaked. But....... I did hear someone say that they may stop the diesel flow and run gas through it instead. But that may take as long as it would to fix the gas line. So diesel should not be an issue unless people start panicking and hording it too.

But as with most things I doubt diesel would be switched as interstate commerce is of primary concern.... That's why the interstates and OSHA are here.
