Unhappy we're outta gas

my town, tallahassee, is officially out of gas with the exception of a few small stations that have premium for an arm and a leg. and word is they won't be getting any tankers in tomorrow.

sucks too because i have to fill up for my trip to kissimmee tomorrow. hopefully central florida has some gas.

people took all the gas because they got scared last night. between like 10pm wednesday and noon today most pumps were dry. stupid panicers.

Bull crap the Plantation Pipeline goes right thru Tallahassee and there willl be fuel delivered. You just live in a place where panicing people have run the gas stations down. Just to mess with people like that they should only allow every car 5 gallons and if they want more get back to the back of the line

PLEASE DONT BUY INTO THE SHORTAGE!!! THE MEDIA IS LYING AND STARTED A MYTH AND A PANIC.

Re: we're outta gas

I currently work for discount food mart and we have 14 stores in our district and ours is the last store with gas right now. No telling when we will get a delivery. I talked to a store manager at a chevron today also and they were told it could be a week or 2 before a delivery will be made. So as much as I hate to say it fill up now because a lot of places will be out of gas for the next week or so. I figure though in about 2 weeks everything will calm down, but prices will still be around $3.00 a gallon for a while in most places and more in the bigger cities.

It wont be 2 weeks. There are huge gasoline storage facilities that feed the State in Mobile. This fuel has already been refined from overseas. Do not believe the rumors or the bull crap about a shortage of fuel.

Re: we're outta gas

People are morons. Fighting at the pumps, scared we'll be out of gas for a long time. I heard of one place, the cashier said they won't be getting another truck of gas till next friday, ends up that's when they always get their gas lol. People panicked and bought all the gas there, and across town. Funny thing is...for there to be no gas, I've sure seen alot of gas trucks refilling the tanks.

Re: we're outta gas

I heard today that the only dock in the US that a certain supertanker can dock in was in New Orleans, so a supertanker can't dock to give us fuel.

Anybody know anything about that?

Re: we're outta gas

^ Read the same report. The only place a super tanker can offload is in N.O. I believe that might be true...however there are many other docks where regular tankers can dock and offload.

Re: we're outta gas

That is partly true but partly false. It is true NO is one of a few ports able to accept Supertankers But several ports have oil terminals out in the Gulf where they can pump it to land to the refinery's. So yes NO is a deep port But yes there are other places where that oil can be pumped into. Let me point out the Docks in NO are not closed and ships can go there right now. The oil refinery's will be up and running within a week or so. They can run without the city being operational

Oh, ok. Like I said, I only heard that from someone today, and as we've all noticed, disasters like this bring out the stupidest comments and ideas from people.

Re: we're outta gas

Wow, crisis really does bring people together.

Thank you, brotha Corey, for speaking the truth.

Don't panic, y'all. Just conserve, combine trips, etc.

These mother****ers are just trying to get your panic dollar, which is an easy grab for them.

Never, I repeat, NEVAR, trust the petro industry. They want your money, and will do anything to get it. Don't buy into the panic, and tell people you know to do the same.
