In Atlanta gas is $4.09 per gallon...if there's any gas in the pumps. Lines are long and "pump rage" is rampant. :doh:

The shortages and high prices seem to be limited to Georgia, Tennessee, and South Carolina. In Alabama and Mississippi there have not been any shortages and the price in my area of Mississippi has dropped to $3.59 a gallon from $3.93 a gallon.

A few of the stations not too far from us in Hattiesburg had a gas war yesterday and they hit $3.10 per gallon. There were massive lines!!

The oil suppliers aren't dumb. They realize that the longer the keep prices so high, the more resolved we will be to find an alternate supplier. I, personally, think that they cooked their goose this time because both Presidential candidates have made it their mission to end our dependence on foreign oil.

Unfortunatelly for those of us who like to travel, there is not an alternative to fossil fuels to power commercial air fare. We might get solar, battery, or LP powered autos, but I am not familiar with any alternative to jet fuel that is even being explored. Overseas travel might soon be priced out of reach of the Average american because of rising fuel prices. Heck, as I check the current air fares to my favorite locations on line, I might already be priced out!

I knew that Georgia was having major gas shortages, but I just saw on the news that Alabama is having huge gasoline shortages too. They even tried to postpone the Alabama-Georgia football game to another date in the future when the shortage has subsided. The governor of Georgia said the game will go on as planned. Thanks goodness rational thinking returned and priorities were kept in order. ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!!!!!!!!

We're still having shortages in NC. The local BJ's has been out for a couple of days and the cheapest I've seen it anywhere close to home is $3.899

Paid $3.13 here in OKC Friday evening. Of course that's still far too high IMHO. ;)

We just got back from a quick two days back in Ames (IA) where we paid $3.29 for midgrade :)

It did drop over the weekend here in Milwaukee, but we're still "high" at $3.59!

It is $3.89 and $3.71 in Savannah and HHI right now(9/27). There was no issue getting gas in Savannah near the airport or HHI. There were news stories about Atlanta though this weekend and someplace was thinking of cancelling a football game because of lack of gas.

Being a northerner I recall that gas was always cheaper than New England but not so anymore.

Bigbird-please post on your trip to Atlantic Beach NC. It is one of the few east coast spots we have not visited yet. Emerald Isle ,and further south,Kure and Wrightsville beaches/Wilmington NC. Thinking of a trip next year and curious on spring/fall weather.

Gas Prices

Not really concerned about prices more about availibility.
We are going to Atlantic Beach NC on Oct 3 for a week and wondering how gas availibility is.
We will coming from upstate NY and get gas in Baltimore at our stop on the way down but am wondering how we will do during our week and filling up for the trip home.
Thanks for any help!
