OUR GOVERNMENT AT WORK: Five Years Of Gas-Can Hell.
I’m pretty sure gas cans used to work. Yes. It was a can. It had a spout. It had a vent hole on the other side. You stuck in the spout and tipped. You never saw the gas.
Then government “fixed” the gas can. Why? Because of the environmental hazards that come with spilled gas. You read that right. In other words, the very opposite resulted. Now you cannot buy a decent can anywhere. You can look forever and not find a new one.
Instead you have to go to garage sales. But actually people hoard old cans.
Yeah, I have a couple of old ones I was going to throw away, but I kept them precisely because everyone says the new ones suck.
After the house fire and the refurnishing of the new house, I really noticed the problem. Items like this that we had owned for decades (and worked) could not be replaced with acceptable, working replacements. We were spending good money for crap. Made in China, Crap .
