Where is GasBuddyGuy getting the numbers? TN seems low-balled since the shortage seems to be affecting the whole state?

I can only guess it's from crowdsourced data since you can report and confirm gas prices with them. I used to sometimes do that, long ago.

On this note, I did watch the ep of My Strange Addiction featuring this person a few years ago.

Not surprisingly, as they mention, she was having a lot of health problems from her addiction.

EV haters complain about waiting +30 minutes for the EV to fast charge, but now they have to wait Hour(s) to get gas if it doesn't run out, oh the irony. :lol:

When I was a kid I liked the smell of raw gas. I was the Pit Crew for my father's Volvo drag car, and I loved the smell of burning gas mixed with Nitro in the air at the drag strips. By the time I hit 25, though, I hated that smell. Raw, burned, any kind of gas or diesel smell makes me sick.
I too remember gasoline having a "sweeter" smell when I was a kid. Maybe it was the Lead? I kinda' think it was because when I was flying in the 80's and 90's, the aviation gas had some of that sweet smell (100 Octane, 'low Lead').

Well, the Romans did use to put Lead in their wine, to make it sweeter! :o
