Exxon on Mallard Creek Church and N Tryon had gas. Minimal lines and no limits. Wife saw two heifers fill their SUV and then TEN containers. Nothing wrong with a little reserve, but seriously, what makes these b*i*t*c*hes think their lives are so much more important than everyone elses???

Also, Circle K on Mallard Creek Church (in front of Trader Joe's) had gas, but VERY long lines.

I'll be heading down to Rock Hill this afternoon. I'll call in what I see. I spoke with a friend about 1/2 hour ago. He told me that the stations were empty down there. But maybe he was just trying to preserve the gas from the ever hungry searching eyes of CD.

Hey, Bark, I'm gonna head in from the countryside to my beloved burg of RH this afternoon, too. I'll look for you when I pass gas stations, to see if I can spot ya hanging out and taking notes.

I seriously can't wait until things really get back to normal and I hope I never see any chaos like this again in my lifetime. Folks have really lost their freakin minds over gas. It's been unreal this week. I seriously miss Boston and their public transportation. I would have parked my car a long time ago and just hoped on the damn train.

They won't be empty for long if all the savages keep heading down here from Charlotte...they've already dried up Fort Mill, why not the Rock, too?
