Is what gas prices went up to in some parts of Georgia in the last 2 hours. Some stations have run out, others are "politely asking" their customers to only take 10 gallons at a time. There's talk of rationing here in Blue Ridge, and our UPS driver just informed us that gas hit $5.00 a gallon in Jasper where we live.

Yikes.

Bicycle's got plenty of fuel, though.

$4.04 at lunch time in Spartanburg. A lot of stations are closed and the ones that have gas are backed up.

I swear I'm going to buy me a small murdercycle.

Kinda ironic that oil dropped below $100 a barrel today, huh.

News is on right now. Never underestimate the berkeley tardedness of your fellow homo sapiens. They've got one news crew at an Ingles (grocery store) in Marietta, where gas is $5.25/gallon, and another news crew at Costco, where gas is $3.69/gallon.

Instead of "riding out the storm" over the weekend, these berkeley sticks are lined up (12 separate lines, 10-15 cars deep) filling up their Expeditions and Excursions...decreasing the supply, increasing demand. Jesus berkeleying Christ.

It's the same logical thinking that provokes people to drive fifteen miles out of the way to save a dollar on a tank of gas.

People were leaving work in the middle of the day yesterday to go get gas all because of a stupid internet rumor. Some stations are playing along and laughing all the way. When I pedaled by a the kangaroo today gas was still well under $4/gallon, just like it has been for a while now.

well, it is putting offline a not insignificant part of the country's refining capacity for an indefinite amount of time.

when I gassed up the other night, during the panic.. There was a guy in a full size tahoe, a guy in a big caddy, and a women in an explorer.. All staring at me because my civic dx hatch didnt need to bump up against the "only 10 gallons per car" rule to be full. They all gave me glaring looks, when it took $25 to put the old civc up on Full.

Where can I find a, "I'm using less gas than you" bumpersticker?
