Some experienced St. John visitors think it's a good idea to take a 'glass is half empty' point of view.
On the smallest of the Virgin Islands, there is only one operating gas station, E&C Service in Cruz Bay. But it has been known to run out of gas. Maybe the barge that brings the delivery trucks is out of service for maintenance, or simply late – no matter, sometimes E&C has no gas.
Gromit, who posts often on the Virgin-Islands-On-Line forum, says "I personally can't relax unless I know I've got at least a half a tank no matter what. It's simply not worth it to risk running out, especially if you are staying in Coral Bay (where Dominio has yet to re-open …)." Read Gromit's message here.
Along the same lines, Gromit adds, "It's always a good idea to have $100-200 accessible because the ATMs have been known to run out (of money) especially over holiday week-ends."
What an island 🙂
