I filled up w/ premiun at the station on 521 and 160 right over the SC line about an hour ago. I can't, for the life of me, think of the name of the station. It wasn't one of the major ones and it is not the Shell at the that same intersection. The Shell did have regular, but this one had both. I paid $4.03. No line. Yipeeeee, I was getting a lil nervous!!!!

I remember when S.C. had the cheapest gas in the nation. A few days ago, I was paying $3.34 in Boston and on the way back paid no more than $3.59 until N.C. I hope that our prices go down and somebody quits screwing us. Besides, my boat uses lots of gas.

has anyone see gas near Dilworth/uptown? Non of the stations I've passed on the bus have had any. I've had less that a 1/4 tank for a month and had just parked it but would like to get out of town tonight and don't want to run out of gas looking

I thought supply has been getting back to normal. I guess there's still some pockets that are w/o gas?

While the pipeline flows from the Gulf are back to normal capacity, it takes a while to make it this far north. I read a week to 10 days to make the trip. A little longer to be trucked to individual neighborhood gas stations. I'd give it another week, assuming the panic buying stops now.
