Central Florida (Melbourne and Palm bay) has gas but going for about 3.85 a gallon, while here in Maryland we have not had any problems... It seems to be spreading however, because at first it was just Georgia and tennessee and now many others are affected including north and south Carolina.

I keep topping off my tank every day! Yeah I know that is "supposed" to be the reason for these shortages but I am not going to be stuck if something goes down!

I live in Pisgah Forest, NC and we have no gas at all! It is a great crisis and it is not being covered on the national news. There are police at the gas stations when tankers come in! What the hell is going on? Is this some sort of FEMA test or something?

Hi everyone.

I'm from Nashville, and had no idea that other places around the country were NOT suffering as we were(are).

As some have stated before in this topic, the problem is mainly due to the foolishness of certain citizens of Nashville.

They come, fill up their tanks, and fill up two fuel cans. I might could understand one, but seriously?

And as for what the original poster said, your friends and family are wrong. I go to Murfreesboro, TN (about 30-45 miles east of Nashville) every weekend(custody thing; I'm 16), and they always have plenty of gas. The price is also usually 20-30 cents less as well.

In response to Anonymous' post, the presence of police at fuel tankers in your area is likely due to the many fights that have broken out in Nashville. Stupid "I was here before you," or "Why were you the last one to get gas here?" It's pure idiocy.

But someone along the line probably heard about the Nashville problems (and how the gas stations had to call in police) and freaked out, demanding that police be present when the truckers drop off their load.

Our crisis is nearly over now; gas stations are slowly starting to regain business, and everybody's calming down.

Look all...I'm not trying to wprry anyone, but I've been researching the "Gas shortage"..Its now in 7 states. Some have been without for almost 3 weeks..Then a truck comes and fills the tanks, and everyone is happy again..for a few days..If you think this is due to "Ike" you keep right on thinking that..and if you think its because of gas hording, then you watch way to much tv..sorry
Get on the net and do your homework..Have you all been so busy that you have not heard whats been going on with wallstreet???
There are reports all over the net of banks freezing credit..Gas stations get gas on credit people! And trust me when I say it's a BIG credit purchase when underground tanks are filled at stations..Now lets put all that together with the fact that an Army unit is being stationed in Kentucky, training for "Civil Disobedience", and there are National guard stationed in yet another town that borders Ala., traing for "civil disobedience"..People please use your head...Now reports today are that a few towns in Oklahoma are out of gas..and yet..there a very few news reports about this..dont you all wonder why???????
Please..go to, and in search type in "gas shortage" and make sure you check the box that says recent date..
There are numerous home videos of just how bad it is getting..then go back to search and type in "food riot"..get the recent'll see what happened in DC last week when ppl started stealing food...
You all have to get you head out of the sand..
You know..If I am wrong about whats happening..then you'll have a good laugh..but if I am'll be gas, no food, for when it all comes crashing I some research on forums, and other sites..and you can see the facts for yourself....

i live in cincinnati was trying to get to my dad's home in south carolina, for rosh hoshannah.
i can't; no gas. after 4 transfers thru state-wide aaa's, i was told there is some gas in ky, some in tn along I-75, 'none' in the carolinas, and very little in georgia.

and this isn't on the news. if my dad hadn't casually mentioned atlanta's trouble, i would have been clueless.

we had ike here last week - hurricane force winds, 2 million people without power for days, some up to a week, and that was also not newsworthy.

i'm thinking what makes me feel really secure in my own home [are you listening, 'homeland security' ???] is knowing what's going on in the country. and that's the only way to prepare.

I heard that there is an organized effort to fool people all over the US into thinking that there is a gas shortage so that they will rush out and buy up all the gas thus creating a gas shortage. This is supposed to go into full effect on Monday, I guess they have started early.

Chattanooga is running a little low, too. There are a few stations around that have regular only, but it look 5 or 6 places and 10-15 miles to get any gas at all on my way home Tuesday.

It wasn't until tonite(when I read this thread) that I heard about Nashville being so low.

I live in Knoxville and have some very interesting news: Knoxville will run out of gas by this weekend and could be out of gas for a week after that.

I am not at liberty to discuss how I heard this information, but I absolutely believe this to be true. Fortunately, those who read this will have to wait only a few days to realize that what I am writing here is correct. This individual said this information would not be discussed in the local media but that Wal-Mart either has or will have several aisles with nothing but gas containers for this reason.

How is nashville now?? I have heard conflicting reports and just wanted to check and see!

Here in Alabama it's *STILL* the same thing. All the Chevron, Shell, and Citgo stations are all empty. The only stations with any gas around here are BP's and all of a sudden the company logos are covered in trash bags.

I asked the woman at Chevron when they'd have gas and she didn't have a clue, she said "weeks?". I went west towards Birmingham and again, no gas anywhere. I imagine without a break this could hit the South real hard.

I have been away from Nashville for the weekend, so I'll get out there tomorrow & report back. I can tell you that there was not gas where I was in Alabama (Ardmore). When I asked the lady when she expected gas, she just shook her head no, real sad, as if to say, "I don't expect gas." I almost asked her if her business was closing down, because that's how it appeared, but she looked so depressed, I didn't want to bring it up. I think there is something to the credit crisis theory, since the prices are so crazy, and some have and some have not. The truck stop chain Pilot always had gas. Good credit? Those who think its just because we panic and hoard, I don't even know what to say. I heard someone say "I hate Nashville because people are so stupid they buy up all the gas." I think it is clear who is stupid. Research a little, there is a lot more going on here. Besides, it's not just Nashville, and perhaps it's not Nashville at all anymore.

Here is what I think expanding on the credit crunch angle... OK so lets say gas station A has a 10K credit line (I am just making stuff up here give or take) normally and usually they get thier gas filled once a week and normally the tank needs no more than 40 to 60% new gas to fill it. All of a sudden the hurricane wipes out gas supplies, the tanks run dry, the gas station then losses lots of business revenue meaning it has to rely on credit EVEN more. Now the tank is 100% empty and instead of 8000$ to fill it, it costs them 25K to fill it with the extra gas and price increase. The bank now won't give them the extra credit to purchase the full amount so they are stuck getting 10K or less and now that only fills up the tank to 1/3 to 1/2. All the people are without gas so they converge on the place and drain the tank in hours.... leading to NO GAS! Of course this is also compounded by increased prices for all the other supplies and stock in the past year.

North Alabama has shortages, too. Lines, $40 max, etc.

The best bet seems to be the little out-of-the-way places, and truck stops.

posted on Sep, 29 2008 @ 06:20 PM
Wow..... It will be Oct 1st in a little over 24 hours.... And many of you have been without gas for three weeks... and the mainstream aint saying squat.....

Good luck. Thats all I can say... We all know how this devolves... Desperate times demand people taking sides. And all I can say is good luck..

So does the south east have gas yet? Not a one liner, I just really want the answer to this question.

posted on Oct, 2 2008 @ 02:15 PM
nope..just a few gallons here and there..enough to keep the masses from rioting on the streets..and yet..havent heard a word about it on the news..

posted on Oct, 2 2008 @ 02:34 PM
The discussions on ATS about the gas crisis in the South East is the only way that I know about the situation going on there with the gas shortage. Maybe a week ago I saw a very soft article about it, and that's been it. There is a lot on YouTube, but you have to Nobody I have talked to about it has any idea this is happening. Updates of the situation there are much appreciated, and I am wishing everyone affected by this the best.

UPdates! Is the crisis over? Do you folks have a good supply of gas yet? These threads were going I see they have kinda died off... does this mean the south east has gas now?

posted on Oct, 5 2008 @ 11:01 PM
Pretty much. No Premium. But many places have Regular. You still see the occasional plastic bag here in Nashville, but prices are going down.
