Going, Going,Gone...
Going, Going,Gone...We’ve been experiencing a shortage of fuel here in the Southeast since (and shortly before) Hurricane Ike hit the Gulf Coast nearly 2 weeks ago. Up until today, we still had fuel in our area, but we were limited to 87 grade unleaded. This evening we drove to town to get a bite to eat, and we needed get fuel before we could make the journey back home- We went to several gas stations here in Travelers Rest only to find plastic bags on all the pump handles- The only place in town with fuel was Wal-Mart. Thankfully the line wasn’t too long… we probably only had to wait about 10 minutes. I’ve heard reports of people waiting in line for an hour or more- only to be turned away when the tanks went dry. The shortage is so bad, apparently an area community college has suspended classes for the week.
