No Gas to be found in Charlotte!
Well a gasoline crisis has hit Charlotte, NC!! I had to go to 4 gas stations on Friday to get gas and the one I finally got it at was in South Carolina. One gas station in Charlotte was closed down by the State because the owner was charging $7.39/gallon!! That is absurd!! Alot of people have run out of gas on the highways and some can't even go to work because they don't have any gas to even get to the gas station even if they had gas. This reminds me so much of the 80's energy crisis. The news says the gas station owners are saying because the pipe line from Texas was closed down that is why there is a gas shortage. The pipeline was closed down long enough to make this much of a difference. Even the State officials are saying the gas stations are holding us all hostage just to make a buck!
They say an end is in sight in the next few days. I really think so many State officials and people have complained they are opening the pumps back up again. Hopefully the news is right and the gas will start flowing again!! I am so glad I traded the Lexus SUV in for my Toyota Camry!!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
