Gas Shortage

Gas stations are still backing up for miles and running out of fuel within a day of filling their tanks. I spent all day Friday watching the live webcam focused on the station across the street from the newspaper. It was controlled chaos. An attendant was directing traffic into one side and another attendant let them out the other side. It went on for hours and was still going the next morning. The line moved fairly quickly though so that was a good thing, but some people still had to wait an hour or more. No one can figure out why it's only happening in Nashville, though. I found gas in Bellevue on Sunday and filled up but I've still decided to ride the bus at least a couple days a week for awhile so that I can save what I have. It's always a good thing to save money...

I guess you and I live in the same neighborhood almost. I live outside of Nashville in Mount Juliet and had the same problem. No gas anywhere... and it's funny but if you talk to your friends wneywhere else in the country, no one has even heard that there is a problem. It's just us lucky Nashville people that are suffering.
