I was doing my normal Saturday errands yesterday, groceries and gas etc, when I stopped at the gas station to get gas. They had run out of gas! (Except the really expensive stuff for 40 cents per gallon extra.) Cashier said they would have more later that day. So, I went to the other gas station and filled up (I live in a small town with only 2 gas stations).
(Of course I would've bought the expensive stuff if that was absolutely the last resort.)
It was such a strange feeling, though. The gas station had no gas.
It got me thinking... what if the gas truck was not going to show up for resupplying? What if that was the last half tank of gas I would be able to rely on having?
Would I use that last half tank of gas in my car to go back and forth to work and just "hope" there would be gas next week? Would I load my car up with all the food and supplies I could and head to the family farm with my kids because SHTF time?
My question to you all is... what would YOU do if the stations were all out of gas and you could not rely on them having any more in the future? What would YOU do with your last half of a tank?edit on 19-6-2011 by tinker9917 because: spelling
