Running out of gas coming this summer

Sat May 01, 2021 6:35 pm

I’m glad we have our Leaf.

This may have the same effect that chip shortages have on trucks. Carvana offered us $10,000 more than we paid 18 months ago for our 2019 F150. Then 2 weeks later after the offer expired I renewed it and the offfer went up $1,000. Then this week that offer expired and Carvana offered another $1,000. So now the offer is $12,000 more than I paid for it new in December 2019.

Wonder what will happen to EV prices with chip shortages and gas shortages.

If I'm not fully happy with my new Leaf, maybe I'll wait for the height of the new car shortage, and see if someone will buy it for $5k more than I owe on it. ;)

They'd have to pay me $20k more than I owe on mine: I've owned it outright since mid-January, and even though the damn bank sat on the title for two months, the pink slip has been safely locked away in my safe for over a month. :P

Back in 2016, after a hurricane damaged the refining facility pipeline in the southern US, there was a gas "shortage" where vehicles were scattered all over town (out of gas) and the picture I took (from my 2013 Leaf of course ;) ) showed the only gas station left in town still with gas (Kroger gas station). It might be hard to tell from the picture, but all of those cars were fighting to get the last drop of the most expensive "premium" gas at that station, since they had run out of regular and plus. Will we see a repeat of those days I wonder? I'll have my camera ready just in case...

To make matters worse, people were running out of gas on the side of the road trying to get to the next gas station (that was out of gas) and thus started a bad feedback loop of out of gas vehicles scattered all over the city. Was really weird to see, like a bad zombie movie, :lol:

My only concern if they run out of gas it that I will have to find some way to lock both my Leafs up to keep them away from the gas Zombies. :shock:

Most everything around here is wet during the rainy season. And the rainy season is long.

I assume that it carries only one type of "fuel." Is this a gas pipeline?
