Gas Shortage

As some of you may or may not know there is a shortage of gas in Atlanta. I think maybe even through out the south. This has been going on for a week or two know, I think? Regardless though it sucks. People are running out of gas, lines are crazy long, fight at the pump, high gas prices, ETC.

Thankfully I moved close to the city a couple months ago and my work, most of my friends and most of the places I go are pretty much in a 5 - 10 mile radius. Which means that my use of gas is much lower than it used to be.

So I have a half a tank but decided to be on the safe side i should get some gas today or tomorrow. After I got done with my run this morning Terri sent me a text that one of the gas stations down the room has gas. This is important because most gas stations do not have any gas. I actually saw about 12 gas stations yesterday that didn't have gas. So I headed over to the gas station and waited in line for 20 minutes to pay to $20.00 cash limit at this station for gas.
Im at 3/4 a tank know and hope that will last me 2 weeks.

Yeah the gas thing is crazy, but it appears its very much due to Gov. Sonny Purdue's lack of action that he is trying to make up for now. Silly Governer....stick with purdue chicken.

You can always drive down here for some gas.....oh wait......that wouldn't work.
