Gas Shortage

Have any of you guys from other states heard about this gas "crisis" we are havin in AZ? Well its pretty sh*tty. I just drove by one of the few stations getting gas and there were about 100 cars lined up, and this was at 1:40 A.M. Luckily i still got over 1/4 tank, I hope that that will last me till this crap gets straightened out.

then again, what would u expect? let's see, president "Dubya" has his hands on a huge oil supply. he's a texas oil man by trade. 'supposedly', due to iraqi attacks, the pipeline has to be closed again. there r oil shortages, and the prices go through the roof. who gets paid in that situation?

sorry 4 gettin all political like, but the sh;t's killin me...

something has to be done! gas prices rose 'cause of the war as a result of iraq shutting off its oil exports to the US....but now that the war is over and we are getting iraqi oil again gas prices are still rising.....this is bull****

something must be done. we need to switch over to another fuel or another way to get around

well we are having a shortage because some pipeline broke, not because of the war. Its bull cuz the major stations like mobil, and chevron get it from california so they can still get gas. But they are purposely not filling up as often as they could so that there is a demand. One station here rose prices to 5$ a gallon for regular.
