Haven't you heard of the $75 limit set on most credit cards for gas purchases? It's not because gas is being rationed. Also some stations do run out, but not due to there being no gas. (Bad managers) In fact there is no gas shortage and never will be. There is plenty of gas to last for a century I bet. It's just greedy people who want more money for the gas that are causing problems. If anything I think it's about time for the price to go down and availability to increase over the next several months. It's an election year! It's not about market and demand.
