    There is nothing wrong with being prepared for a storm , hurricane , snow , tornado etc.When the grid goes down nothing works that requires electricity . I hoard gas , diesel , food , have back up water , firewood . I keep a rotating stock of necessities . Most importantly I have cash ready , during an event , credit cards and checks are worthless . My wife gave me a hard time before a snowstorm when I added 125 gallons of gas , and bought 2 weeks of non perishable food , when the storm hit and the electric went out I didnt miss a beat , kept the trucks moving , kept the house warm and kept the family fed . 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.

    i'll bet the 'prepared guy' voted in the 'R' column...

    speaking of the title of this thread....

    if Obama wins, there will likely be no work for anyone!

    When I sold some gas , I didnt profit on their misery , but on their lack of prepardness ,since I took the fuel to them in 2 feet of snow , filled their generator and started it , what I made was equal to my normal hourly rate plus parts . They got a deal

    I sleep better being prepared .

    I'm just messing with you...I think you should have sold it at a loss... ;) after all you had way more gas than you needed...

    I have a excursion V10 , it loves gas . Between generator and plowing I only had 20 gallons left when the electric was restored . I figured you were kidding
