So if any of you are avid CNN watchers/readers, you might know that Nashville is experiencing a gas shortage. Why? Because people are stupid. Someone started a rumor that there was going to be a gas shortage, people panicked, and made the shortage come true by buying it all up. Way to go people. Yesterday my hubby and I went downtown to watch the Hawkeye game (ugh, don’t even get me started on THAT one), and we drove by a gas station that had its pumps closed and no gas price advertisements. Then a few minutes later we drove by another gas station that had a line for the pumps that was a couple of blocks long. Then I get home and google Nashville, and I get a story by CNN about how there is a gas shortage, but only in Nashville. Now there’s no gas until more is delivered on Monday or Tuesday, which isn’t that big a deal, but geez. It was kind of weird though, because I just read the first 12 chapters of The Hunger Games, and I was all like…ahhhhh, the first thing to go is the gas and next they’ll take away our electricity! And on that note, I’m living basically in District 12…don’t believe me, here’s a map of Appalachia according to wikipedia.
