“No Long Lines”?

The New York Times is either trying to out-Pravda Pravda or is living in an alternate universe.

No long lines? No major price hikes since malware shut down Colonial Pipeline’s operations?

Are you freaking kidding me!

We canceled a trip to see the granddaughters this weekend because we weren’t sure we would be able to get gas to get home. Fortunately, I have 3/4 of a tank and the Complementary Spouse filled up on Saturday when we first heard of the malware attack. I won’t be complaining about having to work from home any time soon.

  1. No long lines in the central gulf coast area where gasoline is transported by barge.

  2. I have kept both vehicles filled, even if it was to add a quarter tank when in town. There hasn’t seemed to be much impact so far on our coast though. Thankfully I also have two motorcycles with full tanks so easy backup. Debating whether to drive the 540 mile round trip this weekend that I was planning though, just in case the “troubles” filter out here.

  3. “filled up on Saturday when we first heard of the malware attack.”

    Which is a big part of the problem – panic buying.
