Florida’s Fox-Driven Panic Pummels Pumps

May 13, 2021

Raw Story:

On Thursday, WFLX reported that gasoline panic-buyers in Florida have stripped fuel from over a third of gas stations in the Miami metro area.

This is in spite of the fact, according to oil analyst Patrick De Haan, the Miami area is not even serviced by the Colonial Pipeline in the first place.

“Drivers are still dashing to gas stations to fill up their tanks, leading to shortages across the state,” said the report. “According to crowdsourced data from Gas Buddy, 30 percent of gas stations in Florida are without gas, 38 percent of stations in the West Palm Beach area, and 39 percent of gas stations in the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area. At the Mobil gas station in Ocean Breeze, employee Hedy Bastedo has had a front-row seat to watch drivers make panic purchases.”

    Reminds me of the nonsense I witnessed in the USA in 1974 (long lines at the pumps; notes on pumps). BTW, that was caused by OPEC when they raised the price of a barrel of oil from $3 to $12 then followed it up with a supply embargo only because Nixon supported Israel during the Yom Kippur War. Countries like Denmark correctly read the tea leaves then began moving away from fossil fuels *that is why Denmark kicked off the wind-power revolution”. After the price increases and embargo, most people in the west just shrugged then went on as before.
