Gas Lines

I am getting plenty of these:

I am curious if the NRO staff/crowd are having gas problems in your

respective areas – perhaps an inquiry post? I am preparing to leave for

vacation to the Outer Banks (currently in Charlotte, NC) and went up to fill

up before leaving. It is an hour plus wait to fill up and the price

increased .25 since yesterday afternoon… traffic on our main road is

blocked because of the lines forming at the service stations. A friend in

Roanoke, VA-area says two gas stations are only serving local customers and

will be shutting down once their current supply has been depleted. Is this

happening elsewhere in the country?

ME: On his radio show tonight, Mark Levin said “Don’t panic” about gas and there won’t be a shortage. Listen to the wise man.

Last summer, Trump was doing one of his rallies, and it was interrupted by protesters. The crowd started chanting “U.S.A.!” “U.S.A.!” of ... Read More
