Albany- Several stations in Albany ran out of gas Monday including Fred Washburn's Chevron station on Gillionville Road.

He says his supplier sent three additional drivers to Mississippi and Louisiana, but flooded and debris-littered roads kept them from getting back to Georgia.

"We're a little inconvenienced, but we try to put that in perspective, we're just happy I'm waiting for gas instead of wishing I had a drink of water," says Washburn.

Washburn's supplier did get him more gas by mid-morning Tuesday. He says he didn't get fully re-stocked but received enough to keep him running until his next shipment comes in.
