Albany- While the price of gasoline has soared this week, every Petro South Gas Station in South Georgia Thursday closed their pumps, selling no gas.

Prices have been taken down off this Petro store sign in Moultrie. Bags were placed over the pumps Wednesday night, after store clerks say they received a call from owner Jeff Lawhorn not to sell any more gasoline. The Petro station on Route 19 in Lee County were also bagged and a sign said they were temporarily out of gas. Pumps at the Clark Avenue station in Albany had caution tape around them. One customer went as far as to call the authorities looking for answers.

"I've called the governor's office, I only got voice mail. I've called the district attorney, I've called the local newspaper, they've directed me to the assistant district attorney in Valdosta," said Kenny Bridges of Moultrie.

The assistant District Attorney's office plans to look into the matter. Calls we placed to Petro South's office were not returned.
