    This is complete bull! "closed gas stations and gas increase of $1./gal?" Where do you come up with this stuff? There is no gas shortage people!!! Stop spreading doom and gloom rumours. I am in North Florida right now and gas is $3.60-$3.70 area and there are no gas stations closed.

    I hope there's gas down south! We'll be headed that way next weekend. Going to Georgia, Florida, and then on to Texas and Arizona. You can go here to check to see how high the prices are: Gas Prices

    I have heard the same thing, long lines and gas shortages in Ala, Ga., Tenn. areas. I live in Louisiana and have seen first hand the damage in this area caused by recient hurricanes, Refineries were shut down and oil rigs in the Gulf were shut down. News here is that some refineries are not back up and running at this time.
    We are planning a trip to Tennessee soon and are looking for reaurance that we can get fuel without long lines. We had problems in Baton Rouge for a while. We were without power for a week, damage was sever in parts of town. I would like to here from those in the areas of concern, Albama, Georgia, and Tennessee.
    Thank you to those who provide first hand informatin on this issue.

    We are currently in Salisbury, NC, and about 2/3 of the stations are NOT selling gas. It is also up about 30 Cents/Gal. Don't have first hand info about any other area, but this is fact here today!!

    Bob needs to know what he is talking about before blasting off.

    I just saw on the Evening News that the Southeast is low on gas and that in Charlotte NC, 1 in 12 stations are OUT. Hopefully things willl get back to normal in about a week.

    I turned on 2 spigots this week! Don't know where it will end up, but somebody is going to be happy! :clown:

    PS. BP started up their cat cracker a couple of days ago. They had water in their control rooms.

    Parigi, I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings, really, but the panic title that you used for this thread set me off. Things are not nearly as bad as the news media would have us believe. I have been traveling around central and north Florida this week and I have had no problems getting gas, nor did I see any unreasonable price hikes. I'm just a little sick of all the panic in the media lately. Seems like every night there is something else about to ruin us all. I'm really sorry that it was your post that pulled my trigger.

    Tex, my old mammy always told me that I was a little too shy and reserved for my own good, I seem to be getting better now. :evil:

    Grandview, I do know what I'm talknig about, there is no fuel shortage in North Florida, I don't believe everything I see on tv, the mainstream news media just love doom and gloom. I have seen the reports and they mostly seem to be talking about NC and Atlanta area, If the op fuels before Atlanta he will have smooth sailing into Florida, if he is going north, fuel before leaving Florida. At least my post stirred up some answers for the op. :clown:

    Be safe ya'll,
    Bob

    Well pal, the orginal poster asked about GA, SC, and northern FL. There are some shortages in GA, SC, NC. I am glad there is not in FL (according to you), but they will travel through some of the other states getting there. You went over the top, just a little.

    Things will get back on track now that Tex has open the valves in his back yard. :laugh:

    In the Charlottesville, VA area we are seeing some stations go a day or so without gas but the prices are staying in the range of $3.69 - $3.89.

    According to the news the stations in SC, NC, Tenn, and Georgia have more demand than they have gas. The gas refinery manager himself was on and said he is sending as much as possible right now but stations are selling it all within the first three hours. No panic to it just plain old pure fact but some people would not believe it unless they were there. Like those who claim there was no holocaust.

    Don't have no use for gas, lol. But, here in southern Illinois diesel (as of yesterday) at the BP was $3.95 and at Phillips $4.09. We're going to buy a couple of extra five gallon diesel cans and fill them up before heading south! That will give us 15 gallons extra in case we can't find a stations when needed! ;)
