Why is everyone going so crazy at gas stations?

Apparently because it's going up.13$ OHHH NO let's wait in line for 45 minutes for 6$ a tank. DUN DUN DUN!!

Idiots, I actually needed gas, you don't need to fill containers upon containers with gas.. Assholes.

lol do people actually do that? I used to do that , fill up when it was 'cheap' , or put in only $20 when its "expensive" ... all you are doing though is wasting your time. If you wanna save money on gas - drive the car less!!

now its just fill it up and run til empty, wayyy easier

Crazy, by the time the people are done using the gas in their tank the gas prices will probably be back down...

what's the point of lining up for gas, to save $8/fill.. only to spend it on bottled water that costs you $2/L... not to mention the pack of smokes, Tim's double-double, lottery ticket and Dentyne gum. If you're going to be that frugle... change the way you drive (staying to the right lane too!)

Now thats a saving

Just came back from a drive down to Atlantic City, gas was $3.45 a gallon, thats about $0.90/L.

We should start a black market for gas smuggling it across the boarder.
