    Atleast the environment is being protected... :beer:


    Further complicating matters is that metro Atlanta has more stringent environmental requirements than other areas, meaning gas from other cities can't be brought in because it doesn't meet the city's smog requirements. The state is working with the state energy agency and the Environmental Protection Agency about getting a temporary waiver of that rule, said Bert Brantley, a spokesman for Gov. Sonny Perdue's office.

    Sorry to hear about your gas shortage. Bummer! :doubt:

    I had just commented yesterday "this is the cheapest we have gotten gas in months!" ($3.51 a gallon - Central California) .... it doesn't make sense! :cuckoo:

    I'm in the Nashville area and we are short on gas as well... Sucks... I sure wish the Democrats in charge of the government cared enough to do something about it.

    Yea, because Pelosi is now is charge of hurricanes that ravage the Gulf Coast :cuckoo:

    It has gotten so bad here in Atlanta, radio stations are actual having people call in just to let listeners know where there is gas these days, and when they are announced, lines immediately start piling up at the stations. My friend had to try over 20 stations and go over 30 miles just to find a station with gas. I don't know why we are being hit so bad, but it has gotten pretty terrible here. Thank god work is only 5 minutes away.

    Here in Tallahassee, until a few days ago, many gas stations had no gas.
