There is gas available. Yes, Asheville seems to be the hardest hit but there is gas in Asheville tonight (I saw it being pumped). There is more gas coming tomorrow. And more gas the next day. And more the next day. This entire situation has been a blip, NOT a crisis and its getting better. By a week from today, it will be forgotten.There is no gas - well, some but it is taken as soon as it arrives. Exxon on Leicester got a tanker and within a few minutes the line was back to Dollar General and the station parking lot was packed. Word got out that Shell in Biltmore is getting a tanker at 11:00 and cars were lined up waiting. Cops made everyone leave. Hot Spot on Leicester got gas and the line of cars went back down to Patton. It's getting worse, not better.
Too many people get their panties all in a wad and start whining when something unpredictable (or sometimes very predictable) happens and it doesn't suit them. Then they turn a minor blip into a major crisis with their own trauma drama emotions. Its the "oh poor me" attitude.
America used to be filled with independent, self sufficient people who had an innovative spirit, created new options for themselves and saw the glass half full. Today, Americans whine and cry over the least little thing and focus on placing blame instead of on being self sufficient and innovative in their personal lives.
