Seems it was just like yesterday when we all fought over and hoarded HEAPS of toilet paper for no reason at all. All the memories are rushing in as the US suffers from a gas shortage. As expected, gas shortage memes are everywhere to bring light to our currently sad situation.
Along the US east coast, gas stations are currently running dry after the largest gasoline pipeline on the US east coast closed down. The closure was caused by a cyberattack on the Colonial Pipeline database. Both the government and industry officials assured the people that there is plenty of fuel for everyone and operations are expected to resume in the next few days, panic buying ensued. Still, citizens immediately flocked to gas stations fearing the worst. Truthfully, this has made things so much worse. People stored gasoline in plastic bags, buying gallons upon gallons of gas.
And thus, all the gas shortage memes were born. People on the internet, both Americans and non-Americans, made the situation so much fun. Here are some of the best, and wittiest, gas shortage memes on the internet:
No gas, no work
How much does it really cost to buy gas nowadays?
Not a problem if you don’t have a license, right?
Glad I don’t have to worry about the gas shortage since I don’t have my license pic.twitter.com/C1fWInkHgb
