Rumors Cause Gas Rush

By Alabama Public Radio

Undated – The gasoline story persists, but this time it's at an entirely new level. Gas stations have been running out of gas across the state, and long lines are common. The prices also have skyrocketed during the past couple of days. Industry experts say the public is overreacting to rumors of a shortage and predict there will be enough supply if motorists quit trying to fill up every vehicle and every gas can they have. The rumors about shortages caused the gas rush Wednesday. And, the long lines continued Thursday. In some places, a gallon of regular costs more than three dollars.
