I feel you bro. I'm lucky the trucks are diesel but finding a way to get it is difficult. Hopefully the tankers roll in tomorrow. What towns are you in?

Get on the Orient Point Ferry and come over to CT. Plenty of fuel on this side of the Sound

Too bad we can't pump the forum swamp gas back to our friends in need.

If only I had a fuel tanker full of gasoline...as a capitalist I would expect a small profit...I think I could sell gasoline for $8 per gallon and come home with an empty tanker...I'd also like to be selling generators at a primo too.
