So, living on the East Coast is a bonus most times, but due to the cybercrime on the Colonial Pipeline, there is no gas to be had here. Not sure about the rest of the states on the East Coast, but I was lucky to be able to fill up last night. Normally, I would not have gone out in my car, but I met my husband for dinner, so afterwards, seeing I only had 40 or so miles on the tank, I decided to get gas. I usually go to Sam's. It is always the cheapest but decided to whip in Walmart's Murphy Gas station. All the pumps were bagged with no gas!
I went to a little Exxon owned by Ma and Pa on the way home and was lucky to pull right up and fill up. It was the priciest place in town, but who cares at this point, right?
I am hearing there are fewer places today and they have long lines. The prices are already over a dollar more than they were this time last year, and now none to be had. So the next issue is the availability of drivers. Apparently, there is a shortage of CDL drivers as well, so if the pipeline gets back on line by the end of the week, they may not have anyone to deliver the gas!
Anyone else living this hell? Sad that those who want to work won't be able to buy gas to get there! Sad world we have here! And the terrorists say they did not mean to make problems, they just wanted to get money. Well, guess they missed this one!
