Currently (here in the Southeast) gasoline is more rare; and certainly more valuable than this 478 carat diamond.

There is no gasoline here... anywhere... and hasn't been in over a week now. And local politicians promised last week that the gas shortage would be over in a few days (by last Friday). Now they are saying it will be another 2-3 weeks before things are back to normal.

When/if you can find a rare jewel of a gas station that actually has fuel here; they ration how much you can buy (at $4 a gallon). Plus there are at least 40 cars lined up, and police directing traffic at the gas station. It's crazy.

I'm thinking about packing up the car and moving to Arkansas. I hear they have real live diamond mines there...and maybe even some gas?

That's just crazy. Gas has actually gone down about 30 cents per gallon here over the past two weeks. That is still too damned high though.

Well, this far southeast we haven't had that problem (yet). I think our gas is like 3.60 a gallon at the moment.

yes is crazy...and not only is gas in short supply, but the price has actually gone up here as well. it's usually around$4 a gallon for the cheap stuff.

stacy...yeah, it seems to be isolated to Georgia, North & South Carolina...hope it doesn't affect you...or anyone else.

I'm just catching up here. Did you try putting some of your jewelry into your gas tank?
