Tempers flare in Asheville

So the gas crunch continues here in Asheville. People waiting two hours in line for gas. Police officers standing guard at stations. Mass panic. Dogs and cats, living together! Rumor has it that some guy driving an old Mercedes wagon with Vermont plates has been driving past gas stations, slowing down so the people in line can get a long whiff of the french-fry scented exhaust billowing from his tailpipe, and yelling "Grease is the Word!" Obnoxious. (And the obnoxiousity is compounded when he honks and waves after the people in line flip him the one-fingered salute.) Honestly, though, this whole situation is putting a real strain on the city. Hopefully relief will come soon.
