    I keep hearing our government tell us that we do not have a fuel shortage and that it is only panic buying that is causing gas stations to run out of fuel.

    Well, if that were true then we would only have shortages for a couple of days, but this is not what is actually happening. Out of the 5 gas stations I pass on my way to work, 2 of them had no fuel.

    Insiders in the industry as saying we have a fuel shortage due to 20% to 25% refining capability is off line.

    Oh, the release of half a million barrels of crude from the oil reserves will save us! Not if you have a decreased refining capability.


    Is it just me or do y'all also think we are being spoon fed a lie to keep the sheep calm?

    oh yea law of supply and demand. you can't have a set demand (everday uses without panic buying) then decrease output without having a shortfall. They are just trying to keep people calm. Can't say I blame them for saying it, but it ain't true.

    Got most of my stuff done today... I work 12hr days for the next 8 days and I'll be stuck at the plant if it comes this way...
