Regardless of how you feel about our dependence on fossil fuels, the reality is that many things you’ll want to keep running after the SHTF require gasoline. Without it, your vehicle isn’t going to be useful for very long. If you’re lucky, you’ll be sheltering in a safe place, but what happens when you need to forage for supplies or if your shelter suddenly becomes very unsafe? Without gasoline, you’re going to be on foot and very limited with your ability to collect and carry necessary items.
