You can't make this stuff up. Consumers are literally being warned not to fill up plastic bags or other non-safe containers with gasoline amid the problems being had after a pipeline was hacked.

You are only supposed to use containers approved for fuel, you know, because that makes sense.

However, there have been reports of people filling up bags or Tupperware containers or bins, and let us assure you - that is a terrible idea and you should NOT do it.

We have warning labels on things because people do stupid things like this.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on Wednesday advised consumers to not "fill plastic bags with gasoline" as fuel shortages and long lines brought on by the Colonial Pipeline shutdown spread in the Southeast.

"Do not fill plastic bags with gasoline," the agency tweeted in a lengthy thread. "Use only containers approved for fuel."

"Follow the gas canister manufacturer instructions for storing and transporting gasoline," CPSC continued. "When using a gas canister, never pour gasoline over or near an open flame."

"We know this sounds simple, but when people get desperate they stop thinking clearly. They take risks that can have deadly consequences. If you know someone who is thinking about bringing a container not meant for fuel to get gas, please let them know it's dangerous," CPSC said.
