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.
