About those bags of gasoline-- just opened my email and found this...

6. I hate being insulted along with everyone else as if filling up your tank

when stations in your area are running out of gas and closing is unreasonable and irresponsible.

Listen to most media, and you'd think the gas shortage isn't because the Colonial Pipeline was shut down. Instead, over 45% of the gas stations in GA (60% in Atlanta) ran out of gas because many (panicked!!!) drivers topped up when they could instead of waiting until their tanks were mostly empty.
