    Anyone here affected by the current Gasoline shortage?

    Just curious. This thread only refers to the Gas Shortage in 'some' Southern and East Coast States in the first two weeks of May 2021. Does anyone here have any first hand experience with lines at Gasoline stations?

    Not in the affected area tank, but prices will be rising everywhere because of this. That is the libtard, environmentalist, socialist, progressive, marxist (have I been redundant enough yet?) plan to destroy the fossil fuel industry. Gov. SixHead in MI has unilaterally closed another pipeline...next step in the assault.

    This was not a coincidental hack by some rogue group. If it could be clearly traced back to its origin you can bet your bippy it was a CIA/NSA operation...don't buy the whole Russia (Russia, Russia, Russia...why is it always about Russia) narrative...same smokescreen now as it was after 2016....

    The assault on America has begun in earnest...fuel shortages and exorbitant prices today, food the same next. Our gov't has declared war on its people.

    I was thinking the same thing, but you beat me to it.

    Some stations are out of gas around here (eastern Md) but others are still pumping. Price is around $2.89/gal. I'm sure they're heading up.

    I have a feeling none of this would be happening now if the Commucrats hadn't stolen the election.

That was the whole purpose behind the left's reaction post 2016.

    As an aside, or corollary to this, I would direct you to post I made on another site, post #3 in this thread: https://www.dirtydozensbunker.com/sh...d.php?t=181330

    Other than prices in IL-ANNOY near St. Louis spiking to $3.199-3.219 about a week ago from ~$2.899 and St. Louis Metro going from $2.419 to $2.799 over that same three weeks, there do not appear to be any "shortages".

    With or without this, expect more shootings just because Idiot Joe is the Resident. It's the Commucrat agenda to increase more shootings to further their goals of disarming America.

    Regular is up to almost $3.30 here in NE Illinois, an increase of over a dollar since Biden took office. No gas lines yet though.

    I've been reading articles it might hit $4-5.00 by this summer.

    I'd be happy to only pay $4 a gallon

    According to the news (for what that's worth), the pipeline should be fully up and running in about 6 weeks. Parts of it are being manually run right now.

    However, in all probability, this is just another "crisis" created to fill the gap when the COVID "crisis" passes away. Commucrats just have to keep the "crises" going.

    They're doing all they can with the rash of "random" shootings that are happening.

    p.s. I didn't think IL was being supplied by the Colonial Pipeline....interesting....

    We aren't.

    It has more to do with out gas taxes that Jabba got doubled back in 2019. What too many people don't know is that, as a part of that legislation, there is an AUTOMATIC INCREASE built in to the bill. It goes into effect on 7/1/21 and I haven't heard how much it will go up this year.
