Gas Shortage continues!
Well, Nashville was all out of gas just a few days ago.
And I almost was too!
Leaving work in Chapel Hill, my low fuel light came on. I knew there was a station just 2 minutes up ahead near my house so I waited. I got there and parked and looked up to a big sign that said “all out or Unleaded Regular…”
But, I need unleaded regular. So did my tank which was still glowing with the Low Fuel light. I went across the street and there were bags on all the pumps. I’m really starting to panic at this point because there wasn’t another gas station for a bit and I was afraid of having to use my Triple AAA card at 10 at night after a long shift. I was tired and hungry.
However, in one pump there was a bag missing. I pulled up to it and it was a pump for some unleaded regular. My lucky night! I filled up and went home happily.
Moral of the Story: Don’t wait until the last minute to fill up your tank.
