    The gas station on Skillman & 39th has gas, the wait is under an hour.

    This is very normal in third world countries that produce oil. No gas,no electricity. We live so that others may suffer

    The corner QB station next to Pete's Grill has had bumper-to-bumper lines on 47th Avenue since mid-week, 24 hours per day. I can't understand why the gas hasn't run out by now. Where is the station getting it from? The waiting lines have completely destroyed the sanity of people living along the route. Horns honking, radios blasting, drivers often getting into fights over priority. Police cars seldom pass by to keep the peace.

    When we begin to run out of this resource, it would be good to know who wasted it. All these cars with just one person, that's who.

    I have been amazed that so many city dwellers even OWN gas cans!

    Anywhere there's a gas station the line is insane! As someone else put it, it stressful for those living by this or even if you have gas to get around you find yourself stuck in a traffic jam by a gas station. Can't wait for this madness to be over. Things could be worse though people lost all they had :(

    I don't understand why, when we are having a gas crisis, people aren't trying to take public transportation (I know it was down and a nightmare last week) or walking to where they need to go. Can't people just leave their cars parked for a few days?

    Something tells me some people are hoarding it. Or just jumping on the "omg what if there is no gas anymore" bandwagon. Tell people they'll be no milk delivered for a week and it will fly off the shelves in minutes. This just makes things worse for people who really need it. Trains and buses are up and running at this point, well almost all. Fingers crossed this madness gets better soon. Sandy...you did us wrong in so many ways.
