    I give up. You can't just say yes or no. That tells me what I need to know and really shows who you are.

    I remember being sent to sit in the gas lines by my dad, I had just gotten my license. If I wanted to use the family cars I had to "earn" it by being the one to sit in the gas lines.
    I lived in Texas in 1979 and do not remember standing in any gas lines there.

    hmmmm....i have lived in Ct. since 1975 and i can't recall waiting in line for gasoline.

    that all took place in the early seventies while i still was in college in Massachusetts.

    bought my first house in 1978 when the mortgage rate was 8.5%. it skyrocketed during the Reagan years. i was glad to have bought when we did.-Paul

    Independence Day, 1979: Lines at gas pumps stretch for blocks, and President Jimmy Carter is scheduled to address the nation. But when he cancels last minute and disappears from the public eye, rumors spread of a health problem or, even worse, that he's left the country. After 10 days, he reemerges with a speech — to address the energy crisis, unemployment, inflation and something else a bit more .....

    Texas actually had odd/even rationing in 1979. Maybe that's why the lines were short. Only 1/2 the cars could get gas on any given day.

    So, was Carter responsible for the actions of OPEC?

    I imagine that Bush would have went to war and turned the middle east into a glass parking lot.
