Some shoppers are making a run on stores that still stock the old incandescent light bulbs.

Why? Because tougher energy standards in 2014 are forcing those light bulbs to go the way of the Edsel.
Some people arent buying the change. They dont like the blue hue that the compact fluorescent light bulbs emit.
But once stores sell out of the incandescent bulbs, they will be gone for good. People who want the Thomas Edison-style warm glow that the old bulbs create better hurry to area stores before they are all out.
The downside of the old bulbs is they dont last as long as the more energy efficient models.
