Gas Shortages

Traveling north in this great country, we came upon one problem with the changing human landscape.  That of gas shortages.  Years ago, when you moved around in the country, there would be small towns with a couple of gas stations with a mechanic on hand, a country store, a bar or two and a few houses.  Today there is nothing but empty crumbling buildings.  Here, I'm talking about the roads less travelled.  On the Interstates there are the usual commercial places.  But as we went along the 93 highway, which is a road that many countries would be proud to call an interstate, we would go for miles and miles.  One sign even said Next Gas 167 Miles!  We developed a saying for our trip: Fill up early and often!
