I drove to 12 stations - 10 were completely out and I waited 2.5 hours to top off my truck!

I got up at 3 am and topped the vehicles off to avoid the lines. Also, I filled up some 5 gallon cans, just in case.

It's gonna get crazy out there.

I didn't realize it was that bad out there.. I heard could be Tuesday before we get any gas. The stations are running out very fast to with the huge lines! Sorry to sound so dramatic but it is rough!

How much is it per gallon down there? Just filled up for $2.21 but right down the street it was going for $2.59.

Wolf:

I'm running hot shot deliveries and emergencies back and forth from DFW to outlying areas for my company (electrical industry) to support the disaster efforts in Houston.

It's not hoarding, it's preparing. I ran through 2 tanks (company vehicle in my signature) just yesterday. But thanks for asking.

It is also an indication of how little gas people usuallly run around with in their vehicle.

It is the same here--only a few stations with gas/diesel, but about 1/2 do not have working systems so even if the tanks are full they cannot sell it. After Ike, there were supposed to be "super stations" installed. Unless those are the handful of Buc-ee's around the area that never happened.

I hope people are hunkering down to cope with this shortage. I'd think it's more important to have gas for the portable generators.

People are panic buying and causing shortages.
Folks with 3/4 of a tank are topping off needlessly.
Today I saw several stations out of gas and long lines at others.
The last time I saw lines like this was the Iran deal in the 70's.
The prices jumped .50 cents in 2 days.
It never goes down that quick does it?
This will get better in a few days,so the local news said.

I have 3/4 of a tank in the mazda so I am going to make it last as long as possible. The truck has 1.5 tanks full and i am going to need it as I need to travel to Port A this weekend to help my dad clear his property of trees that got knocked down by harvey. at 16 mpg I will need more gas I suspect.
