1. I did top off my car's gas tank.

I also bought extra ice cream and raw chicken breast. Both of my freezers are full.

BTW, BJ's was running out of chicken breast, lots of thighs.

2. Bags of gasoline? In the trunk of the car?

How quickly before the gas eats through the plastic?

Gas sloshing around in a storage container?

JFC people are idiots.

4. I bet they didn't make it home.

before a link sprang.

Just the weight of the fuel alone likely broke that bag open.

8. What was the plan to get the gasoline from the plastic bags to the tank in the car?

Just in case the gas didn't eat through the bags?

10. What's the actual date on those photos?

There was a thread earlier today which sourced that first on to a 2019 case in Mexico. The other two might be from recent hoarding, but might also be non-recent photos of idiots at the pumps.

3. Oh those trash bags.....

Makes me wence.

Plus gasoline degrades plastic....

At least one of those pictures shows people using an EPA approved container. That's not to bad (basically an extra tank).


But those hefty bags......I'm a pretty keep to myself guy. But I think I would have called the police.

32. I think the point on that one was still hoarding

I see 3 tanks and there could easily be a couple more. When I stopped for gas yesterday (Central Florida at a Costco) there was a sign limiting everyone to 2 cans or less. No more than 6.5 gallons each.

And my Costco had extra workers policing the lines, directing traffic and watching the tanks.

Puebla, Mexico? It's not like anyone was hurt. Except that they (presumably) went to prison.

7. The first and middle methods are illegal in California.

You have to use State approved containers to fill with gas. I am sure that some dumbasses do this in California too, but at least here they can be legally stopped from putting their lives and those of people around them in danger.

Sad that common sense has to be legislated, but so be it.

No more than 10 gallons.

13. I lived in FL in early 2000s during that summer the state got blasted with hurricanes

And I had to wait in some long lines for gas back then. I don't recall anyone doing stupid stuff like this. People were either filling their tanks and maybe some gas cans... nothing else. This was before social media. I kind of wonder if people are getting dumb ideas from other people on social media.

16. This picture was reportedly taken in 2019 in Puebla, Mexico,

according to NBC-2.com

https://nbc-2.com/news/2021/05/12/fact-check-viral-twitter-photo-of-plastic-bags-full-of-gas-was-taken-in-2019/

With a little help from Google reverse search, the earliest posting of the picture can actually be traced back to a 2019 article from a Mexican publication called Quintana Roo Hoy.

According to an article in the publication, two men were arrested in the state of Puebla after being found with thousands of liters of stolen gas contained in 67 plastic bags. The article was published on March 28, 2019.

33. The tote lady cracks me up!

Would love to know the conversation she is having on the phone as she plans to fill tote with gas, then attempt to lift the super heavy tote into the back of her car, then drive home with it sloshing all over the trunk.
