work at convenience/gas store coastal nc. No gas UPDATED
Ain't that some shit. People had begun travelling to coast Easter, having been locked up for a year. Our beach had reservations booked through Oct. People in town, spending money, feeling free, being alive again.

This morn, Corp called, told us, shut off premium. For now we have reg unleaded and diesel fuel. They told us prices would begin climbing and reach $5/gallon quickly. Next larger town ran out of gas by afternoon. Even interstate gas stores. Only ones who will have gas are those who receive from western part of us and any other stores who get east coast deliveries will have to pay top dollar to get oon west coast schedule.

We didn't really think "they" would allow us to live freely, unvaxxed this summer and travel within us by car freely, did we? Stock up on anything you by that travels by gas. Prices are getting ready to skyrocket. Just hit my grocer and bought food at today prices. Tomorrow, who knows?

UPDATE. Store ran out of gas during overnight fill ups. Per corp, no deliveries scheduled. Managers are out on roads advising those sitting far back in traffic that there is no gas. Local island business affected overnight are landscapers, jet ski company, pontoon boat water tours, shrimpers and fishermen, local boating, marinas, etc. Sheesh, had a perfect season at start off, now these small businnesses are losing any revenue made since Easter. Went to Shallote, BP and Shell had some gas, gas lines, cops directing traffic. Other than that, not much traffic on roads. Don't know about on interstates though.

I don't know about that. I work at a MinuteMan which is Marathon gas. I'm sure local news will cover it this afternoon. I don't have tv but I will check on some local news websites and look for any links. Shallotte, Nc is a larger town and all of their stations are out except the giants like Shell and BP. I will try to find a reference.

We started the day at $2.79/gallon, as it has been since last SAturday. Funny they raised it Sunday (yesterday). I am sure it will increase tomorrow. We ended up with gas lines today and people stomping in mad. Lort, it has begun.

Central (Perry) and South (Douglas) GA, too.

I went to a local station for gas, guy pumping across from me said he'd been unable to get gas in Perry.

A colleague went out to get gas in Douglas, 4 stations were out.

Just checked local news websites. NOt a word. Maybe something on twit, i don't know. I am at Holden Beach. We have no stations but it would be carried on Wilmington news, wway and wect.

Just read that the owner of the pipeline thought it would be operational again in a few days. The article also mentioned could be a problem for airlines.

Thanks for the pin and further input.hf

What's the reasoning behind shutting off premium when you're not out of it?
If I had a dollar for every time I got suspicious...

I'd wonder who was paying me, and why?

Thanks so much for that link. Narrows it right into this area. Will be interesting to see the increase tomorrow. Our mgr increases price from the store. He arrives to work at 5am. That is when we will know tomorrow prices . We had less than 2000 gallons of regular by lunch. Landscapers for beach homeowners buy from us for their equiptment. Also the jet ski company. If we don't get a delivery of regular tomorrow, well, that will be that.

why is it every time we have a democrat president people do this "OMG GAS SHORTAGE!?!?" bullshit and everyone panics, goes out and buys it all up, and forces the price even higher?

i remember this shit happened a couple times under obama.
