more gas stuff

still no gas. and they are telling us it could be 7 to 10 more days!!! i was lucky saturday night and happened by a gas station that had a tanker truck pulling up right as i was driving by. i swerved around and pulled in. still had to wait though. and most places run out in just a few hours b/c people are lined up down the block waiting to get gas. it's unreal. especially since it's just happening here.

Huh, I filled up without issue this weekend. I did notice the station was busier than usual.

I hope they get things worked out...I can't believe they are saying another week. Amazing.

I'm still working on a device that will allow human gas to be used in cars. It fits right in the car seat so you don't have to get out to fill up. I'm just trying to figure out the impact it will have on the bean market. More to follow.

spam we would have our tanks filled up daily with the gas from my guys. i think that's a great idea. even our dog is gassy!

bummer! at least you topped off on Saturday.
it happend here a few years ago. JUST HERE. it was so LAME. the frantic feeling. relax. combine trips.put off everything that is unnecessary. shop for the week instead of a day.

That is scary. Sounds like you were really blessed to just happen by at that time! I'm glad you guys are covered!

I'm so glad you grabbed some gas when you did!!

And Spam...thanks for the stinky laugh.

Ugh! Hang in there! Whenever my hubby and I couldn't afford gas in our early marriage days....we borrowed it from the gas can for the lawnmower. If you have an old baby stroller, maybe take a walk and fill up a couple cans just for a little peace of mind.....

I really like spam's idea--my family could power a jet with that kind of energy!

i already used all the gas from the cans!! and i used my neighbors too! my poor yard looks horrible b/c i can't find any gas to make the mower work!

today i passed 1 place that had gas. hopefully more will be coming...

The same thing happened to me on Saturday. I was the last they let in the lot.

Wow.Crazy stuff -- I hope spammon gets that invention done quick!

side note -- I have a friend who has e-bay questions, is there a way she can contact you?
