The funny thing is the regular news has been warning about gas shortages for a few weeks now. Plan for this to make it’s way across the country this summer.
funny how they go after drilling, fracking, and pipelines with executive orders, then gas starts getting scarce. who would have guessed?

Or, conversely, when a company whose primary owners bet too heavily on one side of the political aisle ahead of an election, lose, and get shut out of a $4tn infrastructure plan...wait for it...national security problems with their only asset arise.

so the executive orders attacked 60% of the electrical grid power sources lol
brilliant thinkers in action.

tbh i'm mostly a fan of nuclear. hydro is my #2

wind farms chop up bird flocks.
solar farms kill wildlife/plant life destroy habitats by blocking the sun
(i think solar is ok on existing roofs)
fossil creates pollution.

News broke that Colonial paid $5mn in ransom. That is sure to incentivize similar attacks.

Don't forget that the noise from wind farms cause cancer, too, some people are saying.
no. but they do kill birds. they are extremely bad for "raptors" i.e. eagles, hawks, falcons etc. they glide right into them and **CRUNCH**

but at least we didn't burn any fuel!

Dont forget when wind turbines are done after 10 years, they get burried. Thats a lot of fiber glass in the ground. Not to mention the concrete base in the ground. Not as green as they say.

My town in Georgia was running out this morning. Already empty stations, lines, and some with premium only.
Has the price per gallon gone up as the supply began dwindling? Or did it stay the same?

Can't wait for a nuclear powered Jeep!!

Although knowing FCA's service department record, there would be mini-Chernobyls all over the place.

Here in south florida it would be justified if port everglades shut down and we couldn’t get fuel…. but the lines are insane and we’re having shortages cause of panic buying.

It has in Maryland (Diesel, too), but there was a lot of panic buying, at least yesterday (no lines near me, but somebody at every pump... open pumps today)
