Maybe those inconsiderate jerks who screwed up you fueling plans also had to get to work? Maybe you aren't the only person that works in Texas? But it could be some sort of conspiracy

Yep. It's happening in Austin too. I went to my local HEB to pick up a few things, and had trouble getting through the parking lot. There were probably 100 cars or more snaked through the lot waiting to get gas. Insane. I didn't know what was going on - guess I missed the facebook rumor.
I'm old enough to remember the gas shortages of the 1970's, with long lines and gas stations out of gas. This seems eerily familiar. Hope it works itself out soon - I'm down to a quarter tank myself.

Social media isn't helping.
Had lots of my local friends that are on FB making panic posts about gas yesterday: "Better fill up! Prices are shooting up!"
So of course every one runs out to fill up.......
