Gasoline is becoming a little harder to get and a bit more expensive in the southeast due to the Colonial pipeline disruption.
North Carolina is seeing a statewide shortage with some locals reporting no stations with fuel available to purchase in Asheville and several empty stations in the triad and triangle areas of the state.
Tennessee is experiencing more sporadic shortages and mostly in the more-populated Nashville area.
Actual gas shortage happening in Nashville. Checked 5 places…all out of gas. Anyone rationing or just filling up their gas guzzling SUVs?
