Any problems getting gas due to pipeline explosion?

Of course I need to fill up my tank, but it's raining here, south of Atlanta, and I'm not going anywhere but just hoping that I won't have a problem getting gas tomorrow or Tuesday. Daughter is in Cobb County and she said that stations are experiencing long lines and running out of fuel. Anybody having any problems getting fuel today?

My wife said the QT at 41 & 92 had cars 4 deep in line. She decided to head up toward Glade Road and the Race Trac had no lines. Price was $2.39

I got premium this morning but a lot of places were out. Regular seems to be easy to find.

I understand Newnan area commuters are having to search for unlead and midgrade far from I-85.

If you have a problem with that, choose a orifice.

Not happy to hear that. I was wondering if I'd be better off waiting on a line over the weekend or taking a chance later in the week. I might have chosen wrong about waiting, the stations may be out of fuel by then. Oh well, we have the golf cart paths over here, so I'll just have to stick closer to home instead of heading to perimeter.

Thunder rumbling in now, still raining.

One gas line has a problem and everyone is having problems getting gas at all stations....what does that tell me. The gas is the same? Or the different stations get their gas and do things to it? I filled up Friday morning here for $181.9....

It's all about jobber contract allocations.

Hey, Markie.
With maybe a couple exceptions, all the gasoline will come from the same distribution terminal. Gasoline is gasoline, and it comes from a big giant pipeline. All the tanker trucks in the area fill up at the same terminal. Some of the bigger companies have proprietary additives in their fuel, which is injected at the rack. Smaller retailers just buy their fuel straight off the rack with no additives.

One thing's for certain: the pipeline operators are implementing contingency plans to get you your gasoline. If you go without, then they stop making money. And we both know THAT is not going to happen.

A few years ago a similar situation happened here in Georgia and we did go without for almost a week, it was crazy. I remember coming out of the ATL airport and needing gas and seeing 0.00 pricing at each station to display they were out. I barely made it home.
