For those of you out of the area, I thought I’d link you to Charlotte’s reporting on the most significant local news story this week. It seems to be buried underneath the national economic news this week, justifiably so.
We’ve been seeing empty gas stations all week, and lines at the stations that actually have gas. Police are usually stationed at the ones with gas, since people have been getting testy in line. Our cars were never in danger of running out (like most of the people making those long lines, probably), and now that the crunch is easing a bit, David went out this morning and filled the tanks in both cars.
If all else fails, he has his bike and I hardly go anywhere!
