In May, I posted a gas station sign advertising gas for $3.38 (regular). Sunday, the lowest price I found around Nashville was $3.89. . .*IF* a station had gas. And, you have to have a Kroger card to get that price. Without the Kroger card, regular gas was $3.89 per gallon.
Stations here are still experiencing a run on gas, and AAA estimates that more than 60% of stations in Middle Tennessee are OUT of gas. The oil refineries that supply this area are running at full capacity, so that is not the problem. "Authorities" think that our shortage is due to people buying more gas than they need, as well as the panic that the shortage rumor set off. The AAA estimate is that area gas stations should all have gas again by Friday.
A side note: Over the past few weeks, I have been working on my MFA field study, http://nashvillewordadventures.com. Since I don't know HTML, I had to rely on a site builder, so the capabilities were pretty limiting. I tried, though. ;-)
If you have a chance, I hope you'll check it out.
