Tried to fill up truck yesterday later in the afternoon. . Pump wasn't working . Went inside and talked to clerk and he stated that they ran out of gas and diesel in the morning. They get their gas from Washington State and apparently there are gas issue now in Washington state. They is on an interstate and is a popular truck stop.


Thought that was interesting. FJB

People think things are bad now, unfortunately they are going to get worse.

We had rationing of sorts back in the 70's, you could only get gas on certain days of the week based on
the last digit of your license plate number. Then, only 10 gallons at a time. Then, you were likely to spend a couple hours waiting in line to get to the pump. Might get to this point again pretty soon here.

Was at a gas/truck stop yesterday morning.

The old farmer/owner[who doesn't work there] was talking to the manager, I overheard him asking her about inventory on all of the fuels they sell.
He listed them off one by one and had her check levels[I guess checking gallons sold].
His look showed a bit of concern.

I was 18 in 1979 and was working in a gas station. The price went from $.28/gal up to $1.10/gal in about 4 months. It started with monthly allocations for the gas stations. So by the end of the month, a lot of stations were running out of gas. That's when we saw the long lines at the stations that still had it. We were one of those. It got interesting to say the least. I quit to get a fulltime Summer job right before rationing started.

I was 19 and remember it well. I had a Trans Am with the Factory 455 and a Chevy pickup with a 454 and was wondering if I would be able to get gas for them. My uncle owned 2 local Exxon stations back then. I’d stop in to use his high lift rack in the service bay to work on my Trans Am.

Used to wait in line for 5 gallons at a time. Station would run out every day. Some people were turned away with no gas. Price was $1.05 to $1.10. Forty Three years ago. That ended Carter's chances. Let's Go Brandon. Why do we have to wait until 2024? We need a Constitutional Ammendment to recall a President and Congress when necessary.

It's already happening here. My work trucks are big, thirsty, gas/diesel guzzlers. Can only put in $100 before the pump shuts off now.

I also remember the rationing. This latest fuel crisis is intentional. Want to raise your blood pressure? Watch this:

Lets give another $40 billion to Ukraine and keep up sanctions on a big fuel exporting country. That will bring back cheap gas.

Americans are causing their own problems and they're laughing at you.

That was the doing of that dumb bastard Jimmy Carter. You know, the second worst president of the US.

Ole Jimmy Carter is STILL celebrating down in Georgia, that he’s no longer the WORST PRESIDENT IN US HISTORY. 🤪

Stopped and filled up the truck this morning, thankfully I still had a bit over a half a tank so it only cost me $60 to top it off. Half the pumps were blocked off with orange cones and had red bags on the pump nozzles, I'm gonna stock up this weekend just in case.


That's ok, I'll ass shoot a dink.
