Only $8 per gallon?? Apparently it's going for $20 per gallon!

The upside to the tragedy is you might have some "I drug fittings through the streets to the job site without no freakin' rig when I was your age" stories.

You sound like a real sh@&t bag !! To think of going there to profit off of those people who have just been slammed by a storm, lost their homes,vehicles, belongings. Your level of intelligence shines through, I do hope you believe in karma, cause you will someday be in need !!

You might check the forum, I think there is a "no sense of humor" thread.

Wow...

But anyway, you have no gas...you need gas and someone has it...for a price. You have a choice...to buy or not to buy.

I have purchased things and paid exorbitant prices for it because I either waited until the last minute or it was the last one.

Second...when you buy something on eBay who sets the value of the product? You do...if you want it bad enough, you bid on it.


All those eBay shatbags...oh those evil gas stations.

Remember...you have a choice...you also could have been more prepared.

Supply and demand...

For what it's worth...I've been without gas and when I needed it I would have paid twice for it...happened about 5 years ago if I recall...I have also been without power and gas and had to drive on icy roads and find a station with power during a storm that had gas.
