When Ike went through it knocked out some of the pipelines and refineries that serve the southeast... which means there is a gas shortage... which means people have been panicking... so now there is a major gas shortage in Atlanta.
- Nik's carpool was 20 minutes late because he was out of gas and couldn't find any this morning
- Ben's swim teacher was 40 minutes late for his swim class
- I spent 25 minutes driving around to 8 gas stations before I found gas (my car was on empty)
Oh... and I paid almost $60 to fill up the tank of my small car!
