Shortages have taken over all aspects of life. Now there's a cotton shortage, which means (oh no!)...

Skimpier bikinis.

And be totally unaware and unbothered about gas prices and shortages. Hell, I welcome a gas shortage as TSLA will see gains.

actually, Tesla's do more harm to the environment and use more fossil fuels to be created than that miserable F250 jacked up pick up that Billy joe jim bob is cutting you off in your Tesla with..

What does that have to do with being glad one has a Tesla in the garage during an alleged "gas shortage". It isn't about the environment, I have 2 other vehicles that have internal combustion engines, one is even an 8 cylinder.

So? How does that have anything to do with the topic being discussed. Also, it’s “Teslas”.

And, if you insist on interjecting this topic: https://observer.com/2019/11/tesla-c...mal-car-study/

thanks, we can always count on you to be the captain of the grammar police

My point, if you bothered to think about it is, that electric cars,(I own one too) indirectly contribute to petroleum distribution disruptions by sucking up tons of fossil fuels/electricity, etc to produce an "energy savings" vehicle...sort of counter productive, but it is what it is

People always write "Tesla's" for no reason. Drives me nuts. I realize it shouldn't.

I did think of it and it still doesn't make sense in the context of a gasoline shortage. Power plants don't run on crude oil (essentially, there's a tiny fraction that burn oil for reserve power) so the connection isn't there. If gasoline was made from coal, you'd have a point.

crude oil, and the petroleum by products that are produced from it, are all part of our energy manufacturing and consumption equation. The more crude oil/energy/what ever that gets diverted from the gasoline supply chain, the more the danger is of gasoline shortages down the road.

Obviously, there are more direct factors that reduce the amount of gasoline in the pipeline, and, the fact that we are using less and less gasoline with the advent of electric/hybrid cars, keeps refineries from going gang busters in the spring and summer as they traditionally have for the last 50 years..those things can make a brief gas shortage even worse..
