I am an avid photographer from Haywood County (Asheville area) in the Great Smokey Mountains of North Carolina, USA. I love to travel and take photos wherever I go. Living in Western North Carolina makes for some great pictures year round! I am also a Skywarn Weather Spotter for the National Weather Service in Greenville-Spartanburg, SC which covers the North Carolina Mountains. Visit my website at www.ncmattj.com
Evening Gas Lines

Thursday September 11, 2008
Caption: Fears of high prices and shortages caused by Hurricane Ike have prompted cars all over Western North Carolina to line up at the pump. All gas in this area has to be trucked in from Charlotte and Greenville and many fear it there may be no shipments until mid-week next week. Here cars are patiently waiting for gas in Bethel, NC, near Asheville. Many area gas stations have raised their prices 20-90 cents per gallon this evening and many have completely run out of fuel.
