Is there a gasoline shortage? I don't find any News stories about there being any. However, when I went to the Love's Truck Stop here in Benson to get Desperado a fill up I found that they were out of regular and mid grade. That was bad News. The good News was that they were selling premium for the price of regular. That is the first time I have ever put premium in Desperado. I notice no difference it how it is running.
