So, for the first time in several weeks, I decided to fill up my car, in need of gas. The nearest BP station lacked 87 and 89 octane gas. That’s ok, my car should get 93 anyway. The price was only $4.09 (not bad considering the prices this summer. The station asked customers to limit input to 10 gallons per fill up. Well, alright, I suppose I can be kind, 10 gallons it is.
I stood there for half and hour while this black gold literally trickled into the gas tank. What kind of scam is that? Should I appreciate the gasoline more if I must wait hours to fill the tank? This situation is ridiculous.
Just fyi for the gas companies: I’ll be acquiring a bicycle! The mode of transportation will get me back and forth to work and stores. That will cut down on the mileage on the car, and hopefully my waist line. Your lack of stock in Athens-Clarke County will be impacted. This community has far more liberal and eco-friendly people than me-they probably already have bikes. You are losing money and will only lose more the longer this takes. Apparently, the hurricanes were the inverted your nightmares: production was not significantly impacted BUT you can’t get the supplies caught up fast enough to meet our demands.
