Gas Shortages

Gas prices have shot back up to around $4.50 in my area, and the closest gas station to where I live, a QuikTrip, has plastic bags covering all of the pumps and removed all prices from the big street sign. They are sold out.

In completely unrelated news, last Friday (two days ago) Gov. Sonny Perdue signed an executive order activating a state statute against price gouging that allows prosecution of stations that raise prices excessively. Thanks Sonny! I'd much rather have no access to gas at all than be seduced into paying outrageous prices. To serve and protect, indeed.
