Snippets of Society During the Southeast Gas Shortage

The southeast gas shortage has brought out some interesting stories as the community faces shortages in the supply.  Among some of the random tid bits…

– The governor of Georgia has offered to shut down various government services to reduce usage, including shutting down schools. (Schools?)

– Arguments breaking out at gas stations with accusations that gas station owners are holding out.

– Taxis changing the way they serve/find customers so they don’t run out of gas sitting idle.

– Lawn/yard maintenance people waiting extended periods to get gas for their mowers and blowers.

– People running out of gas searching for gas with some stranded on the highway and being rescued by the department of transportation.

On the bright side, many people are carpooling and finding alternate ways to commute.  I drove on the Perimeter yesterday during rush hour and surprisingly it felt like Sunday afternoon traffic.
