Self fulfilling prophecy really.

Rumour and prediction of crisis cause the crisis.

Gas is becoming very hard to come by in isolated areas.

It's only a crisis when FedEx and UPS stop delivering...

p.s. all of their drivers were told to max out their tanks tonight and continually top off through the day.

I live in Asheville and it's pretty wild here, they are rationing it out now and local officials are publicly asking people to take time off from work or not drive at all. It's pretty wild. Here's some snippets from our local ABC affiliate...
City & County Leaders Address Gas Concerns
Local leaders in Asheville and Buncombe County are asking people to conserve fuel as the area deals with a temporary shortage of gas.
The aftermath of Hurricane Katrina continues to delay the delivery of gas to pumps in Western North Carolina. Leaders are urging people not drive unless they have to until the supply gets back up and running. The city and county is also asking non-essential employees to take sick or comp time over the next few days to cut down on demand. Asheville City and Buncombe County School officials say buses and schools will run as scheduled.

Price At The Pumps
The disaster on the Gulf Coast leads to an uncertain situation at gas pumps here in the mountains.
As we reported, the hurricane affected two major suppliers of fuel in the Southeast and it is having a ripple effect.
Some stations in the mountains ran out of gas last night but many of those got new shipments this morning.
Along with some concerns about supply there are some price increases.
At some stations the cost of a gallon of regular went up 20 cents overnight.
Some stations have regular gasoline priced at or even over $3 a gallon.
Some stations are putting up signs restricting how much gas you can buy.

Mountain Fuel Shortage
Hurricane Katrina has knocked out power to many areas in the Gulf States and that's affecting the two major suppliers of fuel in the Southeast.
That means delays in fuel deliveries to stations here in Western North Carolina. Wednesday morning we found that some gas stations only had premium. And at least one station, is selling gas for more than $3 dollars a gallon. People are urged to cut back on unnecessary trips and to conserve gasoline as much as possible. If the gas problem continues for several days, cities, towns and counties may ask police and firefighters to stay overnight to be sure they can get to work.

What a bunch of hypocrits. They ask people to do what would be an unorganized strike, but at the same time school continues. Of all the nonessientials in life, missing a couple of days of school over a 13 year span, is nothing. Let the kids enjoy a day off. Maybe the parents will then follow when daycare isn't available.

The way my car uses gas, I might end up taking a day off by the end of the week. I wouldn't mind for a couple of days.
