Gasoline Shortages and Thoughts about Larger Hungers

Driving down River Road in Piscataway today, recreating the first little bit of my forty mile commute to see if the road to the highway is clear, I was startled to see this at my gas station.  

These folks are filling up gas cans so they can run their gas-operated generators. Because of Hurricane Sandy, millions of New Jersey residents are without power. 

This scene made me reflect on how utterly dependent we are on gasoline.

And then, it made me think about how utterly dependent we are.
