Woo Hoo, finally got some gas and it was premium no less! Filled up the DD and got 2 gallons of premium for the miata to start up this weekend.

Most of the places up here still only have 87, if they have it.

I passed 1 station with fuel on my way home. 87 only. LONG LONG lines backing into the street that would typically be interfering with traffic, but there really wasn't any. Interstate was a ghost town again. My commute was a good 20 minutes shorter than typical due to lack of traffic.

Haha. Too bad you don't have a stash of fuel stocked up... That'd be a freaking BLAST on an empty interstate every morning, afternoon, day...

"Look, I can do 120mph all the way to work!!"

yeah, when I went to Columbus I was joking with my wife about bringing a few 55 gal drums with me to fill up with gas. Now I wish I wasnt joking. I'd sell that **** on the corner for $7 a gallon. dont want to wait in line? I've got premium right here......

The biggest problem is though I still want to drive fast, yet everyone is doing 10mph under the limit.
