CNN is reporting that Houston and the surrounding areas are out of gas. It's so bad that the people trying to drive out on the highways are running
out of gas and are parking at gas stations for hours waiting for tankers to bring in gas.
Could you imagine that. Roughly two days before the hurricane is expected to hit and there are 20+ hour drives on highways, you can't get gas, and
ATMs are said to be running out of cash.
Now in another major city U.S. Houston.
They are dispatching 2 tankers now with 5000 gallons of gas each to the highways. But the TX national guard is saying it will not be enough so they
can only give enough to get to the nearest gas station. And the TX national guard is saying those gas stations will also be out of gas. So they will
have to wait then for those to be supplied with gas.
To get the gas, it will have to be pulled from other surrounding areas, so TX should see a shortage across the state.
And with refineries down, the artificially lower prices in TX and parts of the south will likely dramatically go up.
CNN is also speculating that those who tried to drive out and are now stuck in traffic on the highway, will now have to stick out the hurricane in
their cars on the highway with thousands of other cars. That sounds like a traffic collision nightmare as some people will obviously try driving
frantically crashing their way out when heavy rain starts to hit for hours as they are tired, hungry, the kids are crying scared. This is bad.
