Nobody likes to think of what will happen in an emergency situation. However, it is worth planning ahead of time so you are prepared when disaster does strike. If your usual methods of communication and technology are cut off, there is usually still a method to subsist until the disaster period is over. Having a supply of emergency oil or gasoline can be incredibly helpful in this stressful time. Reasons why you should maintain a supply of emergency oil include:
- Having a supply in case the area’s usual fuel distribution system is disrupted. If you or your neighbors are unable to obtain oil, an already chaotic situation can escalate to a critical level.
- It can help you get by until the disaster is over. If you have a gas-powered generator, keeping an oil surplus is imperative to survival during an emergency. The generator can provide power to your home, which protects you from the elements during a disaster.
- If you have a car that is not filled with fuel, fleeing from a disaster-ridden location or seeking a different location for shelter can be difficult if your vehicle is not properly filled with fuel.
