Need another reason to move away from our oil-dominated transportation situation? Take a look at what happened in Nashville, Tennessee this weekend. Thanks to rumors that the town was about to run out of gas, well, the town pretty much ran out of gas. About 75 percent of the gas stations in Nashville were gas-free Friday, according to CNN, but no one knows how the rumor started. Mike Williams, executive director of the Tennessee Petroleum Council, told the news giant that, "Everybody has just gone nuts." Not people driving an EV or running on biodiesel, but apparently everyone else. The empty stations should be resupplied today or tomorrow, but who knows when the next gas panic will hit. We need diversity yesterday.
