Here in Michigan we never had any shortages whatsoever but I still plan on them in the future. Have a barrel of kerosene set aside for heating and a couple of cans of gasoline for at least a week.

It's not the most comprehensive prepping but I'm ahead of most people.
My honorest hope is that one day I will be able to upgrade from my green... or to dash those hopes from my red!

If you are going to store gasoline for an extended period (say more than 3 months) consider getting Ethanol Free gasoline and then using a fuel stabilizer in it. (going to cost you an extra couple of dollars per gallon though) Ethanol treated gas is NOT a chemically stable product AND the ethanol also sucks water from the air into the gas, which is precisely why ethanol blended gas it is NOT used for airplanes which often sit for weeks or months on end. (aviation gas is NOT a good option since it has lead in it, a NO NO for modern vehicles)

Since you are in Michigan LOTS of boat marinas sell ethanol free gas (almost all marinas along the Great Lakes do), but there are other places too. Do a Google search ... there is a great website out there " pure-gas.org " that has a state by state listing of stations that sell ethanol free gas, though be sure to call ahead since their updating of their list leaves a LOT to be desired and not every station listed still sells ethanol free gas.

Thanks for the website, I see at least three marinas and a gas station in my local area on the list so I'll make a point of getting my storage gasoline from them. I've been using Stabil in my storage but would like to find some Pri-G. Haven't found anyone around here that carries it.

I had forgotten what a snarky bitch Energy Secretary Granholm is until I saw the press conference where she said that if we had an electric car we wouldn't be effected by the pipeline shutdown.
