Everything in our lives from the time we start working until we die with our last paycheck is centered around cars. Better get used to it cause there sure is more of this shit coming wether we like it or not. This is a test. [/quote] it was pretty scary when it happened to us b/c people just lost it, there was zero altruism except for closed circles, everyone else just fought. It got pretty bad to the point that they stationed cops at as many gas stations as they could, and through word of mouth, you would hear who got a diverted shipment in, and, by that only... It lasted maybe a couple weeks?? Don't really remember, but remember feeling that I just wanted to leave, but couldnt' luckily we had been in good shape already, but, 99% of the population isn't. [/quote] Back in early 70's if I member right we had a crisis,gas rationing and stations running out of das. Back then most cars got real shitty gas mileage. People would kill your Grandma and kids for gas. Saw quite a few fist fights and other stuff cause of it. Not a pretty sight. [/quote] I was in high school during the 70's and worked at a Shell station here in LA. Back then there were gas station attendants, remember? When you got gas you would have your windows washed, tire pressure checked and oil. Here in LA it was a cool job girls. After the shortage alot of things changed. That's when self serve stations and smaller stations stared closing. I remember cars starting lining up if the heard there was an expected gas delivery. It didn't make sense because they would wait hours and start and stop there engines as they moved up in line. Somedays we would only allow 5 gallons to each car. People would get frantic. Now I remember back then most people were polite. I can't imagine how people would react these days. People are rude if you take too long checking out in a grocery line. No way would I wait in line for gas these days, especially in LA [/quote]
some stations have closed..
As a result, wholesale prices have jumped nearly 73 cents a gallon over the last week. Experts predict that stations are about to pass on that cost to California drivers this week, and there's nothing drivers can do about it.
According to fuel analysts, we could see a jump of 10 to 30 cents a gallon in a matter of days.
What's causing this price spike? The problem is low production blamed on several oil refinery outages due to the extreme heat and continuing problems from an oil refinery fire in Northern California this summer.
californa doom only!
