running low on fuel at one station over the holidays, an off-handed and ill-informed comment by an unprofessional entry level retail employee...

Have we become the National Enquirer?

Well, the Shell station at the corner here has run out of gas as of this afternoon, cash counter man says no fuel scheduled for delivery for three more days...

Perhaps we should re-title the thread to: "Continental fuel industry in collapse"

ok, kidding, just a little...

happy coaching!

Good, I am glad as Tami and I have always felt safe in the RV parking at the front of most Flying J,s. They have the best roast beef dips ever.

Just a little cash squeese. They are just hanging onto alot of their cash and using the law to do it. They have many new sites under construction and probably are having problems finding money for expansion so they just use their creditors money for a while. I think every one will get paid in time and everything will work out. Smart move.

This might be but here they aren't getting all of C-store deliveries. Vendors want cash now.

And to illustrate further the foolishness that comes out of the employees' ignorant mouths...

The Shell station around the corner got a delivery during the night and was full of gas this AM.

They had gas on sale yesterday, ran it dry and got a full truck dump.

Sounds like a planned occurrence to me.

off to hoard some fuel, the horsemen are mounting as we speak...

happy coaching!

Why is everyone saying the employees comment was 'ill informed'?  They told my co-worker in Fort Pierce, FL that they were having problems Tuesday night getting fuel, and there was no fuel at most of the FL, GA and SC sites once they ran out...I know, I went by a lot of them!
They filed Tuesday night, they were not getting deliveries on Wed, their suppliers did not trust them, as well they should not.  Read their comments on theier web site, they basically say if we owed you money, get in line.
Bad management!

I think Flying J is only the tip of the iceberg, before this ecomomy crunch is over we'll see a lot of companies hard hit, some big names will be struggling, has anyone ever seen a better time to buy GM stock?
