Gas stations all around the southeast are running on empty. Although the Matthewpedia staff can find gas easily, not everyone has the same luck on their first try. Fortunately, most cities haven’t equaled Nashville’s fear factor. Complete shortages appear to be few and far between.
Ike – the name of the hurricane that has caused the recent fuel shortages and reduced driving – was also the nickname of Dwight Eisenhower: the U.S. President who masterminded our interstate highway system.
Does anyone remember that clever AIG commercial from the 2004 Olympics in Athens? (You know, years before the Feds bailed them out?) The ad parodied judges at the summer games announcing scores like 6.0, 6.5, and 7.0 after a performance. When it came AIG’s turn to announce a score, we instead heard the amount of AIG’s assets (in dollars) in that fake Greek accent. Say it with me now: “Seven hundred billion.”
You can’t make this stuff up.
10 frequent-flyer miles to the first person who can find any trace of that ad on the Internet. Leave proof in the comments.
