People are hoarding gasoline down by me
« on: Today at 04:19:43 AM »
...and its causing gas stations to run out of fuel.  Just like the toilet paper craze/shortage of months ago.  Why do people act so dumb.  Now i might not be able to fuel the bike to go to TWO Suches, Ga this weekend.  Dang it......Well back on the hunt for gas stations that have gas.....

Nothing like letting people know not to hoard gas is the perfect way to get people to hoard gas...

Gas, toilet paper, sanitizers, ammunition - there's a difference between being prepared for an emergency and hoarding. People hoard when 1) they are scared/paranoid, 2) selfish/narcissistic and 3) lack of trust that government and/or business is able to manage crisis and protect the public.

Consumption.....

A parts dealer friend in Dawsonville GA said yesterday morning that there was no gas to be had around him, so he doubted he would be able to make the AMCA Southeastern National in Denton NC this weekend.   This situation won't help their event.   I had a short truck trip with a friend for some bikes & a granite trip to GA planned for this week, but it can all wait.

When I first saw that first news report about "There might be shortages.." I thought oh crap... here we go... 500 gas cans later these people will be stuck with 200 gals of bad gas in a few months...   Its just dumb.
