Gas Prices

Long lines and rising gas prices. They are a direct result of Hurricane Katrina BUT all the way up here in NC.

gas price

This was the price of gas today at 5 o'clock at the Sheetz station on Swing Road in Greensboro. I captured this image during the price change. The price jumped from $2.99 to $3.29.

One lady at the pump to fill up was on a cell phone and was jesturing and stomping around about the whole thing. I thought she was outraged about the ever rising cost of gas. When I talked to her as she exited the parking lot, she said her anger was because of the timing of her visit. She arrived just when the pumps were shut down for a few minutes to change the price and that was causing her to run late. She said she'd pay whatever they set the price at because she has to get around.

UPDATE: Gas Price picture from Atlanta



THE GOVERNOR OF GEORGIA IS THREATENING TO PROSECUTE GOUGERS. I'D SAY THAT'S A CASE!!!

I spoke to a local gas station operator this morning. His regular Monday delivery of gas did not arrive. He expects to run out today or tomorrow and says his supplier cannot give him any word on when to expect another shipment.

It's $3.09 here in Lexington.. And I've heard similar stories like the one from Roch101, not necessarily here in Central Kentucky, but north of here near Cincy.
