And yes I sold some 5 gallon cans of gas for more than retail , It took time to assemble , and unload and prepare , it was a basic business transaction based on supply and demand .
So you profited on others misery...you are a real piece of work!

You also did something out of the ordinary...you were prepared...Oh my god, what a novel idea!

I too am prepared...I keep gasoline, food and I normally have cash in my safe for emergencies.
