  • Fuel shortage

    A lot of stations here in North Ga were out of fuel today

    the blown pipeline has affected fuel supplies well up into NC .... we are camped on I-95 near Smithfield, NC .... one of our club members drives a tanker for Raceway and has been put on alert to be on the road south early in the morning .... our group was able to fill our vehicles just prior to the price jumping .... we have heard that some chain stations in our area are now out of fuel .... hopefully they will get the pipeline repaired quickly

      I saw all the gas lines closed on the way out to eat but the diesel pumps are open.

        We fueled up (diesel) yesterday afternoon in Perry, GA at a Shell station. They were out of 87 and 89 octane gas but were still selling 93. Stopped in Dillard, GA this afternoon at an Exxon station. We were behind the station at the diesel pumps but the gas pumps out front looked busy. We noticed 2 or 3 stations between there and Maggie Valley that were closed. Don't know if it was because of Sunday or no fuel.

          I filled the truck with diesel at Walmart in Ellijay this morning, called a friend here at Doll Mtn to let him know all gas pumps were bagged and only one diesel pump was working and by the time he got there they were closed. He did find diesel at a Shell but paid $2.39/gallon for it. i dislike Walmart but to their credit they hadn't raised the price.

            while some stations still have fuel available for sale, many in our area are out .... the pumps at all of the Sheetz stations in our area that we have seen are out of service

              Looks like the stations in Blue Ridge and Ellijay have fuel again, lots of vehicles at pumps

                We are not affected by it here in the lowcountry. We were in Ga. last week in the central part and there were no shortages that we saw.

                  it is clear that the Governor's relaxation of trucking regs is working in our area .... more tankers can be seen on the road and fueling stations .... local Sheetz stations are back in operation

                      while running around yesterday I didn't see any stations without fuel .... for the most part gasoline prices seem to be in the $2.25 range with a diesel in the same area .... that's up about a quarter a gallon
