Default Running Out of Gas

Well, the broken fuel pipeline is beginning to affect us here. Many gas stations are out of every grade of gas. I've still got about 3/4 tank in the work truck. I think I'll stop by my local station and top it off in the morning if they still have any. All my other vehicles are already topped off. But they better start getting shipments up here tout de suite or it might start getting ugly.

Just goes to show you how quickly a SHTF situation can arise. Gasoline is one thing. Food delivery is another story. When people start getting hungry, they start getting desperate. Come to think of it, if this gas shortage continues on the East coast, it could affect the trucking of food to the grocery stores and many other products. Delivery trucks can only go so far before they need fuel too.

The tanker trucks are starting to make their deliveries. But it might take awhile for them to get caught up with all the empty stations.

The Colonial pipeline suffered a leak in Alabama near Birmingham. They said it lost 250,000 gallons of fuel. The affected states were Ga., SC, NC and further North. Heard on the news that the repair/bypass has been completed and they will start sending product up the line tomorrow. It will still take a couple days for things to get back to normal and prices to settle back down.

Things are getting back to normal. We really didn't have any trouble getting fuel. There were and still are some stations that haven't gotten their delivery yet. The tanker truck drivers are busy as can be getting product out where it needs to go. By the weekend things should be like they were.
