My DH is coming home from NC from work this weekend and they are in a dire emergency for gas there. It sounds very bad. I am in Powdersville and really have been able to get gas when I need it. I have seen a few stations out but its been hit and miss.

What is the situation coming down 85? What is your area like?

I live in Easley and every station here had gas of this morning. Ingles and Dodges had it for $3.48 a gallon. The situation here isn't bad at all. In Western NC though, it's a whole different story.

I drove home from Raleigh this past Sunday and had no trouble finding gas in NC or SC. If he's driving 85/40 and going through Alamance County, NC (Burlington/Graham), prices on Sunday were better there than in SC (at least along the interstate) - and it's 100% gas (no ethanol). Flying J and Hess at Exit 150 (Haw River) are $3.55 today, according www.GasBuddy.com.

Tell him NOT to stop around Concord/Kannapolis (north of Charlotte). Prices were really high and some stations were out.

I haven't had any trouble finding gas either. I saw a couple stations that were out a few days ago, but I've been able to get it anytime I need to.

We are very lucky in the Upstate. I just checked several other C-D forums. Charlotte, York, and Asheville are all currently experiencing panic buying, long lines, and/or gasoline shortages. Shades of 1974.

Aiken is out almost completely. There are only about 3 stations in town that have it. If any other station gets it, people line up in droves and suck it all away..>

Maybe I spoke too soon. I was on my way somewhere around 5:30pm and needed gas and stopped by two stations that were out of unleaded. Found some at the next one I went to, but it scared me a little! I was on empty.

The two stations closest to my house have been out for two weeks. The BP in Mauldin is also out. Weirdly, lots of stations have regular but no premium. I was almost on empty so I stopped and got only a gallon today because the place was charging $4 a gallon. I just got what I needed and went somewhere about 4 miles away later. Paid $3.81. I don't understand how they price. I know there's normally a little difference but 20 cents?

TY kindly for the answers. Just incase I filled up an extra car as a reserve. That way when he comes down and if we run into a problem he can use it this week back in NC till they get back to normal. Sounds very, very bad there. If he tops off somewhere here in SC then it is still no loss as we will still use it, just slower lol.
