We are leaving the 18th for stright run to Fl. I heard and read that in some of the south there is a problem getting fuel and wondered if
anyone has heard of or had a problem that might help not to run into. I usually fuel in Va and GA on 95 so as long as I can keep it above 1/2 tank I should be ok even if I have to fuel up more . Willie

There were some crazy rumors going around the end of last week,so some had panic attacks and filled up everything they had causing many stations to run out temporiarly. They have plenty of fuel now,no problem,if you have the dollars!

Some of the East Coast product pipelines (e.g., Colonial Pipeline et al) were down temporarily immediately after Katrina made landfall. Most of these are back in operation now, so fuel supply should be OK. Just bring $$$$$.

I just filled my Saturn wagon at the 'cheap gas' station near me in Athens, GA. The price was 2.90/gal for 87 octane, but there was a 10 gal maximum fillup. I don't know how many stations have this policy. State taxes on gasoline here in GA are forgiven until Oct 1 when then start charging tax again.

I'm sure I'm much too late for a reply, but this may help others.
We had no problem whatsoever fueling up on our trip to AL & back. Prices were around $2.59-$2.79 when we were there last week.

There's no fuel shortage. First of all, most of the station owners packed up and left town when the storm was coming, and the 4 million people evacuating out of Houston swarmed the remaining open stations, and got all they had. Everything is open and back to normal. However, the oil comapnies have gone over the top with greed and you will need to bring both an arm and a leg with you when you stop for gas.
