On The Spot

When’s the last time you ran out of gas?

“In the early 1970s. I was a hippie, driving back from Roanoke, Virginia.” ~Mike Klubnick, Cold Spring


“In 2012, on the Newburgh riverfront, several blocks from a gas station. A policeman gave me a ride.” ~Karen Thompson, Philipstown

“I’ve never run out. I was always taught ‘keep the tank at least half full’ because you never know what’ll happen in life.” ~Bob Phillips, Beacon
