As Kip says in Napoleon Dynamite: I guess you could say things are gettin' pretty serious. Our cars are getting a little low on gas and no gas stations in the area--from Panama City to Mobile AL--seem to have gas. When a station does get a shipment, cars swarm around the pumps like flies to hot dung.
We take for granted the efforts it takes to move goods around the country. Also, we're far to dependent on nonrenewable sources of energy. I mean think about what the name means. A day will come when nobody in the US can find gas--but hopefully by then nobody will be looking as we'll be driving cars that are powered by air and happy thoughts.
