Are any of you seeing or expecting shortages???

No, I'm not neckbearding or buying it all out.

I ask because over the weekend my two step sons, somewhat preppers and each out on their own, each went and bought (8) 5 Gallon cans and then filled them.  I'm guessing mostly because of the nation wide gas shortages...  
Not sure where they found (16) 5 gallon cans.

My wife txted me this morning and was telling me about this.

I've been all over our corner of the state, and in the Collinsville IL area over the last week. Prices are up everywhere but I haven't seen any issues with availability.

Maybe they didn't hear about it when it happened...seems a little late to be filling up and it higher prices.  Also, CP only got hacked on their billing system, not the infrastructure that was reported....(which is BS that story was not corrected sooner).  CP shut down the pipe line, because they didn't know how to properly bill for the gas, until their bill server was brought back online.  

I think the cost of it as only gone up like 40 cents a gallon.....I just know it got up to $2.80 or so...I think it was in the $2.40 range before that story broke.

That is unless there is some new crisis I'm unaware of!

This is what I was thinking.
