I heard gas stations are running out of gas
 
Just wondering has anyone heard that no gas coming out of Houston

mchunter67 08-29-2017 09:59 AM

a number of locations in the Waco area are out HEB, Walmart, most of the Valeros

TX Outlaw 08-29-2017 10:01 AM

Yes most gas stations are out .

ACCURACYINC 08-29-2017 10:01 AM

Every station I stopped at yesterday was out of gas in the Spring/Klein area. I was fortunate to find one Shell station that still had diesel. Probably best to avoid any station that has standing water in their lot I would think.

altez 08-29-2017 10:49 AM

Heard on the radio that some stations in Austin are out of gas as well. Most distributors get their gas from a pipeline that runs from Corpus to the Austin area.

Rwc 08-29-2017 12:24 PM

There are some in the Waco area (along I-35) that are temporary out. For the most part, all stations I have driven by off I-35 (along S.H. 6 northwest) still have fuel.

We're making it as fast as we can with pretty good margins right now.

Wish I woulda had inland refinery stock. Ours went up 10% upon landfall

91cavgt 08-29-2017 01:31 PM

On my way to work this afternoon I passed 2 out of 5 gas stations that were out of gas. I also passed a fuel depot where tanker trucks fill up with fuel and there were only 2 trucks there.

So will we eventually see the fuel depot here run out of fuel, and thus more local gas stations out of fuel?


btw, this is in Waco

I retract my previous post, since I drove by the Valero's and 7-Eleven off S.H. 6 and S.H. 84 this morning they are now out of gas but still have diesel.

ACCURACYINC 08-29-2017 02:54 PM

FYI I was just informed the Valero at Grant and Spring Cypress has water in their diesel.

Yep they are running out one by one in Waco...

Artos 08-29-2017 04:17 PM

McAllen is out...

breese 08-29-2017 06:22 PM

I stopped at two different stations on 287 north side of Ft Worth. Both out.

HuntForHorns 08-29-2017 06:42 PM

You guys can't imagine what is going on behind the scenes to make sure stations have gasoline. You will hear more about it soon. Just know that people are working around the clock to get gas and diesel refined, to the terminals, and to the gas stations. EPA has stepped up and is providing wavers on many of their regulations to make sure any gas and diesel that can get here, will get here. That being said, you don't have to be a rocket scientist to know the system will be stressed to the max for the next few weeks. Have faith that big oil and the government want you to have the gas you need.

Roy D Mercer 08-29-2017 06:56 PM

For those traveling north I35 in Lorena there is a small mom & pop convenient store that has fuel (gas) just a few miles off the interstate. At least they had fuel at 6:00 this evening..

Maddox 08-29-2017 07:06 PM

The Woodlands HEB in Indian Spring Shopping center had 2200 gallons of 87 octane at noon today and were closing at 3:00pm. I'm not sure what time they open in the morning, but I'm sure they will sell out quickly once they do.

QDM4fun 08-29-2017 09:37 PM

From my experience with Katrina, gas will be a problem for about a week, at least that was our situation. no gas for a week or so, then a little gas with quotas. They lifted the ban on off-road diesel in road trucks for about a year here. It was made worse by people trying to get all the gas they could, whenever they could, even if they really didn't need it. Best advice I can give is don't drive around and don't drive all over looking for gas. If you can sit tight till next week, it will get better. Good luck and God Bless

How about diesel supplies west of San Antonio?
Any word on running out out there?

The Kroger in Allen had the pumps turned off at 4:30 this morning. Don't know if they were out or just trying to control it more.

I filled up across the street at 7-11 with no problem.

Acameron52 08-30-2017 12:23 PM

Filled up with diesel at Bucees this morning in Fort Worth.


Hopefully I can find enough to get home from the lease this weekend. Worst case I have to stay a few more days, dangit.

Txsurveyor2014 08-30-2017 12:49 PM

The Kroger in Forney is out of gas and I just saw a report that QT is going to be selecting which of their stations will have gas, but that roughly 1/3 won't be getting anymore until supplies return to normal.

brrdnk 08-30-2017 12:55 PM

Krogers and Walmarts in Mansfield were out last night along with most other stations but there were a few that still had gas. Kroger still had diesel though thankfully.

Tx_Wader 08-30-2017 01:18 PM

There are hundreds of ships waiting to unload crude oil but they can't because the Coast Guard has to verify the channels are clear from them.

The refineries have lots of reserves and are nowhere near out of fuel but once shut down it takes a while to bring the plant back up.

The fuel racks where the fuel goes to be loaded into tanker trucks, some were damaged by the storm and/or have no electricity.

Then to even further complicate things some racks have no ethanol to blend with the gasoline so you can run the gas in your vehicles.

It will get better faster than we think.

Corpus is loading trucks so Victoria won't be far behind.

Going to be a while before the Houston refineries are doing anything.

Shinesintx 08-30-2017 02:12 PM

Walmart is out of gas cans...let the hoarding begin.

Acameron52 08-30-2017 06:33 PM

QT sin Lewisville is out of regular but had plenty of diesel. Went ahead and joined the crowd and filled everything up tonight just in case.

Johnny Dangerr 08-30-2017 07:32 PM

San Saba and Lometa are also running out.....

brrdnk 08-30-2017 08:11 PM

Good read about the gas situation.

Kroger is evidently out. Drove by at 2:00 yesterday and not a single vehicle was there. 7-11 was still pumping and the line wasn't too bad.

Mike Javi Cooper 08-31-2017 07:18 AM

Hit and miss around Waco... wife found it at the first station she went but father-in-law when three places before he found some..

Grocery store shelves are pretty bare...

If this helps, all three stations at the intersection of S.H. 6 and F.M. 185 had fuel this morning.

Patton 08-31-2017 09:23 AM

Has station by my house in S Austin only has premium

Charles 08-31-2017 09:31 AM

Stations around Dallas and surrounding areas are starting to run out too.

Best advice is, if you don't have to drive don't. No telling how long the shortage will last.

Chapo 08-31-2017 01:04 PM

My wife said she has seen several stations in the metroplex that are out of gas today

rtp 09-01-2017 11:54 AM

I just paid 2.49 for regular unleaded in Franklin Texas. Glad they had gas as I need to get back home to Sugar Land without worrying about fuel.

COOLDAD1 07-25-2019 11:41 AM

We been hacked.

Hart8 09-29-2019 10:02 AM
