That NEVER happened; I was there. There were long gas lines. At one point, you could only fill on alternate days, depending on your license plate. Gas stations sometimes limited the amount of fuel you could buy at one fill up.
You're right. Folks never ran out and bought bicycles or motor scooters. They just lived with it.
