    Ugly: Gas is Gold

    Seems that gas is the #1 needed supply in the wake of Super Storm Sandy:

    Reports: Fistfights, Guns Over NY, NJ Gas Shortages

    Interesting, as many SHTF websites and TV shows claim gold, silver, booze, food or ammo will be worth more...

    I find it funny what people view as a necessity. Gas, no don't think so.

    Long term yes, short term, when you know that the power is coming back, gas is useful.

    Maybe it should be illegal to have a gun in New York. That would fix things.

    A breakdown in society......

    Reports: Fistfights, Guns Over NY, NJ Gas Shortages

    Just a few days and we have fights with fists, knives and guns. Over gas. Looks like MANY did not plan by filling up BEFORE Sandy.....

    It is not like we didn't know it was coming.

    According to the news tonight, many stations are already running out... and will not be restocked for 10 days.
    All that said....
    It could be worse.

    Isolated incidents are not a breakdown of society.
    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

    There are fistfights every (EVERY!) day over things as foolish as who's basketball team is better. (Hey jryan630, ggGGGGo 'CATS!) Why should we be surprised that the 24 hour, sensationalist news cycle wants us to believe that New York City is on the brink of complete social chaos. After all, that keeps us watching...their news.

    the first thing to go after a hurricane is the gas supply. You need electricity to unload the fuel trucks and the steady supply to New York from the refineries was halted during the hurricane. D'oh.
    In 2004, we experienced the same thing in Orlando.....three times, after Charley, Francis and Jeanne. I warned members here that they should stock up on fuel and other necessities, and hope
    they took it seriously. Apparently no one in New York has a clue what to expect in the aftermath of a good strong hurricane. NO FUEL, NO FOOD, NO ELECTRICITY.
    Welcome to my world.
