Phoenix is crazy right now .... 75% of the gas stations in town are completely out of gas and the ones that have gas left are charging incredible amounts for it.
A pipeline that brings in 30% of our gasoline was broken in July and is yet to be fixed. There saying atleast a week or two before it's fixed and gas starts flowing again. In the mean time they are bringing in trucks, but they can't bring in enough to meet the demand.
Watching the news this morning they had video of stores raising prices as high as 2.69. When I first started watching the highest prices they had found was 2.15 for the low grade unleaded.
Amazingly enough, looking out from my balcony, I can see 2 gas stations which still have gas and cars lined up down the street to get it, however I am yet to see a single bike head down the road.
