No Gas in Atlanta

This is crazy. We spent half of our day today worried about getting gas in Atlanta. Here is a neat real time Twitter feed with Atlanta people posting the status of gas stations in the area. 11alive.com NBC Atlanta news is also posting a message board.

If you Twitter, use #ATLGAS with your tweets about Atlanta gas. 

(What’s Twitter? Go to www.twitter.com to set up a free account. Find and follow people with similar interests and post where you see gas with #atlgas! It’s addicting.)

Here is the article explaining how #ATLGAS began on Twitter from its creator, Tessa Horehled, with lots of other gas conservation tips for us in GA and the rest of the US. http://tessahorehled.com/

Google maps also has a posting but it’s more outdated – all of these site are only valuable if more people would post gas sightings. So far Twitter is the best source for real time info.

Good luck! I hope we see relief this week.
