You know that's what they say. I can't believe the useless politicans aren't doing anything.

I moved here from CA and wow this was a big mistake. I'd go back in a second if I could dump my house.

Nah...all this too shall pass; only a temporary blip. You couldn't pay me enough to go back to CA, and my entire family is still there!

I was in Charleston yesterday and we filled up with no problems...they looked like they weren't having any gas problems there.
That's because the gas in that area comes off a ship not a pipeline.

To add to what you said about the speed it travels....it takes 20 days for the fuel to make a 1,000 mile journey.

I've been following this with interest and have developed a theory. Interested in others opinions. The two pipelines that come into Charlotte have to serve an area well beyond what you might think. It seems fuel distributors here in this area also make deliveries into the mountains because Charlotte has the closest and largest facilities. A minimum batch of a million gallons is required to tap into this pipeline so Charlotte is the source for fuel for many towns in this region. The pipeline doesn't have any spurs there and thus no storage facility. With this mess it just means the fuel has to be spread even thinner...(one station in an area with gas and no others, etc). As you can imagine, one delivery into the mountains takes a whole day for a driver.

Gov. Easley relaxed restrictions on the amount of fuel drivers can carry and how many hours they can drive before they have to sleep. Sure hope that doesn't contribute to any wrecks.

This guy's insight was interesting about the implications of a 10 day refinery outage.
