Gas stations in Washington state are resetting their price boards to accommodate double digits in preparation for fuel prices potentially reaching $10 a gallon, according to a report.
The move comes as several gas stations in the Evergreen State ran out of fuel, the Post Millennial reported.

First, baby formula shortages, now we MAY be looking at fuel shortages too. Right now, this seems to be a Washington state issue, but with the resetting of price boards and at least 10 stations out of fuel (except diesel), somebody seems to know something we don't. Of course, 76 denied that the change means prices are heading toward $10 a gallon and up.

We could take the easy route and call this a Putin shortage, but it could also be that the Biden administration is doing everything it possibly can to exacerbate the problem.

Last week, the Biden administration announced that it was canceling three oil and gas lease sales scheduled in the Gulf of Mexico and off the coast of Alaska — removing millions of acres from possible drilling.
The Interior Department announced the decision last Wednesday night, citing a lack of industry interest in drilling off the Alaska coast and “conflicting court rulings” that have complicated drilling efforts in the Gulf of Mexico, where the bulk of US offshore drilling takes place.

So... we create more supply by repeatedly restricting it? And what about refineries? I have been told here at ATS the problem isn't the drop in production from near 13 million barrels a day in 2019 to just over 11 million barrels a day now, but that it lays in refining the product.

To me, it all sounds like a convoluted manipulation of the market.

Washington state gas stations run out of fuel, prep for $10 a gallon
Biden desperately needs more oil, so why is he canceling leases?

They told you this was coming.
They are on record with this plan to raise gas prices to get people to agree to their bizzaro climate shenanigans.
$8us per gallon was their estimate on tape.

To act like the left hasn’t planned this for at least a decade now is just silly.

This is what the democrats voted for.

I hope it hurts them worse than it hurts the rest of us.

I hope it makes their lives suck much harder than our lives.

They will keep upping the crisis ante till 2024, gas, baby formula, and mail-in ballots will be the last thing you will worry about.

I had read something a while ago about if tshtf and what to do in true survival.

Someone the other day was complaining that they couldn’t find sunflower seeds. My knee jerk reaction was to give them some of mine. In what I read it is very important not to give things away, even small things without something in return.
That goes against my nature, but that is part of survival. When I say things, it can also be the intangible like security, knowledge etc.

In widespread survival situations bartering becomes that much more important.

It's hard to get lower income people to buy a electric car it will be alot easier when gas is 10$ a gallon

The green leap forward marches on no matter the cost

Soaring inflation, baby formula shortages and now fuel shortages. And these are the people who are going to save the world from climate change.

This may be a stupid question, but if the prices stay high, even as oil had dropped here or there, yet the oil companies are again seeing record profits this quarter,I think one was 33 billion. Can't anything be done about that? That's not just greed or gouging? Sorry this is not my area of any kind of knowledge. I do understand that taxes are added to the gas to pay for the state road infrastructure and such as well.

The problem there is it still takes diesel to get the parts to the factory and the car to the consumer. And then add in the inflated additional costs of producing electricity. Infrastructure to get the electricity to the consumer.

Electrical cars will be unaffordable too. Got a bicycle? You'll be walking soon.

Northern europe here.. Just had to fuel up my car.. just over 2.5e / Litre. I think its about double for what you are currently paying.

It looks like it will be 3e/Litre in five weeks.

Take that putin.

My husband went to fuel up the other day. He told me the person in front of him paid over 1K for his fuel.
I'm assuming an 18 wheeler. We are going to see this reflected in prices real soon.

I live south of the border and travel up to the States frequently. I've noticed how outrageous the prices have gotten on a lot of things up there, including gas.

Here we have a great burger joint. You can get a good burger and fries for $7US. All the fast food joints up in the states are almost double that price anymore. I love the Churiburger they have at this burger joint/sports bar I frequent on the beach. It has avocado, serrano, chicharron, bacon, and cheddar, plus all the fixings. Whoever came up with the idea of putting freshly made chicharron on the burger is pure genius. Gives even some of the best burger joints in the States I know a run for their money.

ETA:

I've also noticed an influx of Americans buying stuff at the Sam's Club here. It used to be the other way around. We'd be driving up to the states to get better deals at Costco or Sam's Club. Now it's the other way around. Crazy times.
