Just drove around Cornelius. Gas pumps are closed. Whats up? Can you get gas in your area?

I filled up at Cashions in Huntersville over a week ago and there were lines around the block that day. Looks like most of the other gas in Huntersville is out or very expensive.

Most of the gas stations on North Tryon St have gas. I filled up yesterday for $3.99/gal (ugh).

And how about that $16 jump on crude oil yesterday. Wow!

your risking it if you stop at Carowinds the last two time those filler stations was out I ended up going in Rock Hill at the Raceway it 3.77 but carry cash there credit machine was having "issues"

There is more down the street however.

Most gas stations in FM are out of gas...it's a crap shoot...you could be lined up waiting and when it's your turn to pump, they run out. It was crazy last Sunday night. We attempted 4 stations before we finally got to pump at $3.75. In the Y&L thread, some people have asked the gas station owners why this was the case and they were told that their suppliers have been price gouging. To push back, they decided not to re-stock since if they did, they would be the one accused/cited for price gouging themselves. Not sure if this is the real story. My suggestion is don't wait till you're near empty before you start scrambling for gas. You almost have to use a gallon just to refill!
