Ron McRath, manager of the D.I. Texaco at Great Bridge and Dominion Blvd. in Chesapeake,Va., takes a second to wipe his sweaty brow as he tries to maintain order on the long lines leading to his gas pumps Saturday afternoon Sept. 20, 2003. Tempers were rarely short in McRath's lines, despite a 30 to 40 minute wait to fill up. ( Kelly Presnell )
