buying gas from craigslist
 
So i have 0 on my range meter because every gas station is sold out or not operating. Here in NY gas is very hard to come by and places that have gas run out quick, with lines that are 4hours or more. I waited 8 hours only to end up with no gas. I am desperate to buy some gas on craigslist for $14 per gallon (rip off I know) but the price is not my concern. Can i trust whats in there. I proposed buying 5 gallons of gas and the seller of gas to put one gallon in his tank. He agreed to that. I need a little gas to get over to NJ (pay tolls $20) to buy some gas over there.
Would you do it? bad idea?

I feel bad for you son. I got 99 problems but buying gas ain't one.

If you're desperate, you're desperate. Just do it.

Imagine if we had a national disaster or event that lasted for a long time

Are YOU prepared with supplies to LIVE on your own for at least 1-3 months?

If not.... Hope this is a wake up call to all

where do you live by? i have a lot of friends in queens im sure i can point you toward a station with out a line

clk500 11-07-2012 07:08 PM

well I learned from this for sure. Didn't expect this to last this long. Figured there be gas by now. Good news is there is gas but just not in NY.
I will go for it.

You can think of it this way: That's only a little more than what gas costs in Europe.

I've bought craigslist gas... it was good and it goes quickly, so you don't have to worry about it spending the night

We've got around 1,200 lbs of protein on the hoof, 2,000 lbs of kiln dried firewood, 10 gallons of beer + ingredients for 20 more gallons of beer, cider and mead. Not exactly a balanced diet, but we'd have a heck of a bbq.

There are guys that would deliver for $10 per gallon. My bro in law is "ordering" 10 gallons tomorrow.

If I were you I would just get 5 gallons or so and then drive to Elizabeth NJ. I went last night and only waited 15 min

kuksul08 11-07-2012 07:49 PM

Dang that really sucks guys, I wish you the best.

How shitty is it for someone to do that during a disaster
