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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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..

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
