In the 1970's with gas rationing and alternate-day sales requirements, I had to wait a whole day. Think about this the next time someone suggests a bigger role for the government in the gas market.

Somewhere around 45 minutes on 9-11-01 when gasoline prices soared, and people rushed to buy gas. Unfortunately, my tank ran too low, and I had no choice but to fill up. The gas station was so backed up with vehicles that I had to shut the engine off several times, thinking that it might run out of fuel at any moment.
