GAS SHORTAGE

I hear it's pretty bad in the southeast. Anyone here affected?

Nothing happening up here.

I'm curious and have the same question I asked as a little kid when we had the last gas shortage and everyone had to fill up by odd or even number on their license plate. What does NASCAR do doing a gas shortage? Do they keep having the races or suspend them?

I live in the Southeast and over the weekend there were some stations here that were out of gas...this morning the station nearest my house was only allowing people to buy 10 gallons until the tanker with the gasoline showed up sometime this afternoon...one station in Spring City was closed due to upping their gas prices way over the limit! Hopefully things will get better in the next couple of days...(I live in Southeast Tennessee by the way)...

NASCAR don't do fuel shortages. Sunoco keeps 'em well supplied with gas.
Gas was $1.18 a litre yesterday, but it may have gone down today being as it's not the weekend anymore.

Nashville had a big problem a couple of weeks ago. People panicked and began filling their tanks whether or not they needed to, and at one point about 85% of the gas stations in town had no gas at all. It took several days before the problem was rectified, but I knew people who had to get rides from others because they were out of gas and couldn't find any, and when gas did appear there were long lines to get some (and plenty of short tempers, too). I lucked out because I had filled my tank just before it happened, and I didn't need to get any more gas until after things were almost back to normal. But it was a tough few days here for some people.

No problem in New Orleans (fingers and toes crossed); in fact it has gone down a bit since Gustav and now is about 3.60-3.65 a gallon.

No problem in Central Minnesota. Gas is $3.27 here and plentiful.

I heard areas of North Carolina were dry. Come on up to NY - we are "down" to $3.69 for regular.

Gas in Atlanta, Georgia was not easy to find this past weekend. Very long lines still this am. I hope it improves soon.

I heard on the news that a few places in Dallas ran out of gas. There have been very few shortages in Fort Worth, and prices were actually down today - not to pre-Gustav and Ike prices, but definitely the lowest since they hit. I'm running of the top half all the time now since there's no one in this area who works anywhere near where I do, and I can't afford NOT to have fuel.

Did NASCAR even exist back in the early 70s?
