ALBANY, GA (WALB) - There's a run on gasoline. Hundreds of cars are lined up at pumps and South Georgians watch in amazement as the price climbs above five dollars a gallon in some towns.
At Wal-Mart Friday afternoon, gas was selling for $3.89 a gallon and that created a frenzy.
Station owners said their whole sale cost is what's going up because of Hurricane Ike. They're forced to pass the increase on to customers who were frantically filling up. Here's a good example of the supply problem, at Woodall's around 1:30PM, they ran out of regular and mid-grade. About the same time the price jumped to $4.49 a gallon.
This morning representatives at the Southeast Terminal on Gillionville Road told us they had plenty of supply coming through the pipeline from Texas to Albany and their trucks were leaving the terminal filled.
Several stations in town however have told us they've experienced problems filling their tanks. Woodall's say because they're not one of the major chains they get what's left and that's why they've run out.
Others the like BP were limiting their sales to $30 so everyone got some and it was the customers who filled up early who ultimately may have won out.
Gieryic's searched for two days and finally got a load last night, but it's a third of what they asked for and now stations are hesitant to ask for more if the prices begin to drop Monday.
