Friendly neighborhood gas update

Gas. Exxon at Piedmont and Ponce de Leon was totally sold out of gas today because of the run on it caused by rumors that Atlanta’s gas would be cut off because of Katrina. There were probably 30 cars still at the gas station across the street (at 10 PM) and officers still out trying to keep order at the gas station. A neighbor paid $4 a gallon at the Buddy’s station at North Ave. and Highland. The Governor says gougers will be prosecuted and set up an 800 number. The number was busy despite repeated attempts to get through, we’re told. The news was reporting $6 a gallon in Macon.
