Re: crazy gas shortage?

If you live near Burlington NC/Greensboro NC you should be familiar with the Colonial Pipeline Fuel Depot. That pipeline brings in the fuel that services alot of the area out to Raleigh. However the line going into Greensboro is fed via LA and Miss. I understand that fuel has not been pumped through that pipeline since Sunday. There is a terminal in Smithfield, I am not sure about the path of that one.

What folks really need to remember is that while this disaster is going on - the folks in those area aren't buying gas. Overall consumption should decrease in the short term while those folks are walking around. It's a shame that the NEWS CHANNELS don't mention that fact. It might help keep folks from creating an artificial shortage by panic buying. Anyone remember the Toilet Paper shortage sparked by the Johnny Carson joke many years ago?
