It's like a bad dream: You're driving for miles, watching the needle hover precariously over "E," and passing dozens of gas stations that have their prices blocked out because they have no gas left.
I lived it last night. I was thinking of how you don't really notice gas stations until you need one - and how you notice every gas station when you need one and they're all empty. A single store in my neighborhood had gas to sell; it also had a long line and a $25 limit on what you could buy. But it got me into work today.
A lot of drivers in the Southeast are sharing the same stories. And you can see from this article and on Tuesday's show how the shortage is affecting people.
