NJ has several sources, only one being the Colonial Pipeline that serves Charlotte.

BJ's gas in Pineville has regular. $3.89 for members $3.97 for everyone else. The guy there said that they got refilled this afternoon. No lines. The Carowinds Petro Express, on the other hand, is completely out of all grades of fuel, including racing fuel.

We passed 15 stations this afternoon, only 2 had gas.

In Union County, the little gas station on 84 between Weddington and Wesley Chapel and the station at Old Monroe and Wahaw-Indian Trail, in front of Food Lion. Both had lines, probably 30 minutes tops.

Anyone know of any places still open tonight that still have gas? Or that will be open early with it?

We just got back and only found one station with gas. There were pretty long lines, so we kept on going.

It would be nice to go back out tonight and fill up though.

I live in Waxhaw.

Thanks
