I will caution you all to cognizant of the current dilemma if you are heading out west this weekend. The dang media has blown this "non-existent supposed gasoline shortage" up to the point it's causing mass hysteria. Gas stations are 30-70 cars deep currently in Midland. Several stations are already out of gas. I have heard from Dallas to San Angelo to Midland it is like this. Complete stupidity on the medias part and ignorance on the publics part in my opinion. I am not trying to add to this nonsense but you may find yourself out of gas if you aren't prepared for the craziness that is going on currently. Just be prepared and be safe.

Rant over.

There, I edited it to be more clear. I am not suggesting to contribute to the problem, but if you are not prepared for what is currently happening or aware of it, you will have greater problems than what you were expecting.

In Abilene the gas situation was normal early this morning, by noon panic had set in. Lines started to get long and some places did run out of fuel.

It's stupid...it's was like a wildfire in a windstorm....the panic is creating the shortage. Facebook is a major contributor...but when the run begins there's a choice to make filler up or risk not getting any.

And I was going to be going to Conroe to see my grandson this weekend for his birthday party but now that's on hold. As much as I want to be there, I don't want to be there and not be able to make home because I can't find fuel.

The same thing was happening a long time before Facebook ever showed up. I have seen more about the gas situation today on the news than any forum or Facebook.

I just read this. Thanks for the PSA Theringworm, I had no idea this was going on. I'll be leaving later this morning for Sonora.
