Gas in North Carolina. Huge lines and cops at the pumps!
Most stations are completely out of gas here. The ones that still have it have huge lines and two even had cops. There have been bags on tons of pumps all over town all week but the bigger name stations like Exxon and Citgo have been full until today. I may be able to post some picts in a little while.

Any other states having problems or is this just a NC thang?

Cops at the pumps for real, yo? Weird.

I know TN was having issues, and I went to a station in KY afternoon last, and they had no gas. (The station down the road did, however.)

Okay. I've got a conspiracy type question. Are southern states being targeted with these fuel shortages and, if so, why are they trying to limit your mobility?

I can't believe it either. It has been scare all week but today it got crazy. I am assuming it is because people are getting paychecks today, tomorrow and Friday and want to fill up. A couple of the smaller privately owned stores have been closed all week.

SC is starting to run out. Stopped at two places this morning before finding gas at the third.

My boss in Asheville, NC said they are OUT. There is one gas station that the cops use. They closed and put cones up but people were still coming at night and using credit cards at the pumps. So they put two police there to "guard" it. Police are not patrolling, only going out on emergency calls.

I had read a post somewhere that they are trying to push for a refinery off the NC coast but it isn't going over well. Maybe that has something to do with it.

Re: Gas in North Carolina. Huge lines and cops at the pumps!
I'm north of Atlanta - we've been playing musical gas stations for a couple of weeks now. Plus long lines and short tempers.

I was at a gas station at 5.15 am this morning and there was a line - the station across the street (BP) was out. However, these stations seem to get deliveries of only one brand, i.e., regular, premium etc. . . when they have gas people bombard them to fill up tanks.

Some stations here are only letting you pump $20.00 of gas.

It's hit and miss to find gas here too.

Same thing here in Southern Maryland. I have seen two gas stations today that are out of gas. This is interesting as well.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78366

The person that I know that lives there said that the supplier is in SC so SC towns are getting the gas first because they're closer. Don't know if that's true. Not up on how gas stations work.

Already am. They are charging twenty cents more than other gas stations in town. Even one right across the road. No idea how they think they are going to get business.

You don't think people would rather pay $3.79 on one side of the street as opposed to $3.99 on the other? Sounds like a laziness issue more than supply and demand.

Personally, I don't care if it's from Venezuala or not. They're all crooks.

I am in Upstate NY and we have no problems with the gas. No shortages or lines whatsoever. I wonder why only the southern states seem to be running out??
