Gas Shortages in the South East!

Is it not unreasonable for the MSM (Main Stream Media) to not report nationally that there is a severe gas shortage in the South East of America? There are two things that this nation can not function without, one is food, and the other is Gasoline!

After talking with a friend from North Carolina today I heard that most of the gas stations in his state are rationing gas because it just isn’t there. Trucks go to the refineries and end up coming back empty. The local story is that the refineries shut down because of hurricane Ike, they just have not started back up yet.

AAA: Nashville Has Worst Gas Shortage in Southeast

(AP) -- Nashville continues to see the worst gasoline shortage in the southeast.

AAA spokesman Randy Bly said Atlanta and Tallahassee, Fla. are also seeing shortages, but nothing like in Nashville, where long lines and empty pumps have been a common site since Friday morning.

Somebody explain to me why gasoline is abundant in New England but you have to travel from gas station to gas station to fill your tank in the South East? This whole scenario and manipulated shortage of gas wreaks of political punishment to keep red states red! It isn’t bad enough that America is being robbed by the mega bail out for Wall Street but now we have the oil companies manipulating and strong arming Southern States to toe the line of the Republican Party candidate. Big Oil still has not made enough money so they are punishing Red State voters for even thinking about voting Democrat. If I were a die hard Repbulican voter that had to face this level of deception, I would vote for Obama out of shear spite! Screw me, screw you!

There is not one valid reason why gas is being rationed in the South and it all points to corruption and market manipulation. After all is said and done, the Robber Barron’s are still alive and well and wielding their power regardless of what Washington thinks. Vote for the GOP and their candidate for President or you don’t get gas for your car or truck to go to work. Then again, it’s just big oil business doing what they need to do to protect their special interests.

The reason for the shortages in the SE is because the main pipeline to the SE, which runs into Atlanta (and is called the Centennial line) was shut down due to the hurricanes and has only recently come back on line, and not at 100%. Combine that with the panic buying going on, people topping off their tanks at every opportunity, and you have a shortage. If you really think this is all some sort of master plan where supplies are being manipulated, you're nuts.

I've been called worse MZ. There is still no reason for the shortage when tanker trucks going to the refineries can not load up?

Some refineries are running at 20%, so yes it possible that if a lot of trucks show up there will be some that don't get any. Law of supply and demand. Not everything is political until someone brin
