Gas issue in charlotte

Because Hurricane Ike knocked out many oil refineries along the Gulf Coast, gasoline has been scarce in Charlotte. The price is around $4 and most stations have been only open a few days in the past two weeks.

I’ve waited in line for up to 30 minutes for gas and it’s taken extra planning to make sure I’ve had enough gas. No fights in the line where I was, but that one person who appeared to be breaking the line got an earful.
