    All TA/Petro locations along I-40 from OKC to Arizona have been a disaster. Half the pumps are closed so obviously lines are extremely long...

    Not sure if Pilot and Loves are experiencing this shortage as well?

    I definitely wouldn't be running below 1/2 tanks right now, just to be sure. Don't wanna get caught with your pants down!!!

    I just watched a very interesting short documentary about Cuba, and what it's like there (that is, what it is like normally, before the riots they are currently experiencing).

    Let's all hope and pray it doesn't get that bad here. Here is a link to the video if it hasn't been taken down yet.

    I watch 2:31 minutes. What crap propaganda. I mean I'm only 40 years old. But their information is not new. It has been how Cuba has been since at least the Cuban missle crisis in 1962. It a dirty secluded sheet hole. What is the point. When did people believe its any different. This is far from breaking news guys. No one with a brain thinks Cuba was any different, except uneducated.

    Now I have met some Cuba car guys. Some of the nicest people you will ever meet. These guys are putting diesel boat motors in 57 chevys. The make things work.

    But anyone to believe Cuba was anything more than a crappy 3rd world socialist country has thier own head stuck in the sand.

    But it was a dictator socialistic country. Unfortunately we are heavily reliant on socialistic ideas. Police, fire, parks, farming, Healthcare, welfare. Go to far either way, we end up with a Dictator. I hope no one wants that again.

    I’d say TA/Petro is going broke. I haven’t seen ANY other fuel stop, Chain or Mom and Pop with this issue. If you sell fuel for a living and can’t keep it stocked to sell, you won’t be around long…

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but TA's are mostly independently owned?
