We panicked

You hear about the gas shortage?

Depending on where you live you’ve either been not affected at all or you’re in a complete gas desert, apparently a result of your neighbors’ panicking when told they might not be able to buy gas soon, filling up plastic bags and such with gasoline.

(By the way, filling a plastic bag is not a good idea. The government said so. And speaking of governments, and the regulation of gas prices… don’t even get me started, this post is about panic shopping.)

Loudoun County Virginia? Yeah, we panicked.

If soon all of us are just not driving anywhere at least we have a precedent, right? It’s the March 2020 routine!

We were all going to be hiding in our houses avoiding the cicadas anyway, right?
