Gas shortage: Where did you find gas on Wednesday?

Posted September 21, 2016

Gas at the Murphy gas station in the 40/42 area, 9/20/16

As gas runs out across the Triangle, have you been able to fill up today?

If so, where and what did you pay per gallon?

Wednesday, 9/21: At about 9:45 pm Tuesday night, I was able to fill up at the Murphy station near the Walmart in the 40/42 area for $2.09/gallon. The Sheetz near there was expecting a truck late Tuesday night. Looks like deliveries may be starting up again. Are you seeing the same thing in your area?

Sheetz loaded a free self-serve drink on to my Sheetz reward card as an apology for their tanks running dry. It's valid through 9/23/16. We picked up ours on 9/20 and it deducted the cost of the drink automatically at the register with no issues.

    Thanks YBAverage and Faye for posting about the Clayton area gas stations. DW and I have an upcoming trip to Brier Creek and I was concerned about otherwise using the car to make sure we had gas for that trip.

    Clayton gas stations are getting deliveries this morning. Speedway on US 70 by KFC & Dairy Queen got a delivery around 9am. Looked like the Exxon up the street (near Hudson's) also had gas. Good Luck everyone !

    I too remember the gas shortage in 1973 -- lived up north, depending on your tag number even numbers got gas on M W F days and odd numbers T TH & S. My father drove into the city daily to work, so he was sitting at the stations a lot!!
