Gasoline shortage in Greece

July 27th, 2010

Here in Greece there’s a severe shortage of gasoline due to a delivery driver’s strike.

In this photo I took two days ago in Athens, the traffic to the left is moving. To the right, cars are lined up for almost three blocks waiting to pull into a gas station.

Another common site is closed gas stations. Here’s a BP that’s closing up shop.

This isn’t limited just to major areas; small towns are having the same problem. Not a good time to go for a long drive since there’s no guarantee you won’t run out of fuel in the middle of nowhere.

Hopefully the strike will end soon. But in the meantime there’s still plenty of tasty Mythos beer to drink while we’re stuck in Kalambaka.
