I, fr one, would rather pay $20/gallon of gas during a power outage
I, for one, am prepared for power outages.
You have a 400+ gallon tank of gas that you keep topped up with fresh gas? (it goes bad) That's barely enough to run one small generator for a few weeks, and after Katrina and Ike 3-4+ week outages were common so you'd need twice that much fuel.
Right storm. Within a few hours a 200 mile wide band of gas stations were completely out of fuel, leaving evacuees stranded for 24 hours or more. This started days before the storm, not because of last minute panic and lack of individual planning. People who have jobs left work to discover every gas station withing range of their car was already out of gas. It was a lesson to city planners about what just-in-time fuel inventory systems have done to evacuation planning. So sorry your google is broken, life must be hard for you.
Oh right, fucking nothing.
Know-nothing shitheads need to keep their god damned mouths shut until the find a fucking clue.
I was just thinking that myself.
