Not sure if this is a nationwide thing or not,however this afternoon around 4:00 they announced on the radio that gas was being rationed out and we could only get 10 gal.
Luckily I had filled up earlier in the day @ 3.56 gal.
By 5:00pm there were lines at all stations here in Soddy with no less than 25 cars in each lane and paying 3.90 gal.
I've just found out that by morning the gas here will be 4.70 gal for 87 octane and possibly not be allowed over 5 gal.
Also saying once the gas is gone it may be awhile before there's more.

All this BEFORE the storm hits.......... totally insane !!

Sure wish I could pull off a stunt like this and get away with it with the vinyl siding !

As it turns out, one convenience store/gas station, The Pantry, who has a lot of stores in the path of Ike, announced that they would ration fuel at their stations ONLY. And in the typical level headed and reasonable American fashion, people freaked out. All the stations in the Loganville area raised prices 5 cents and there were lines at each station!

You got the "schwin" ready to go? Laughing
In fact after some thought, you might need a bike built for two, so DW can get to work as well.
