    Pain at the pump

    Panic at the Pumps?


    Small college town in the mountains, Sylva, NC was the scene of chaos fueled by rumor of $6 gasoline and rumors that tomorrow there will be no gas in our surrounding area.  There were reports of fighting and streets were clogged so the police and local rescue squad had to assist.   While privately owned stations covered their pumps and shut their doors the chain stores had lines over 1/2 mile long around 7 pm tonight.  This video was shot around 9 pm after the worst of the lines and traffic was over.





    Video was shot around 9 pm on 9/11/08 in Sylva, NC
