CAIRO, GA (WALB) -It seems everyday the same story repeats itself. Gas stations are running out of gas. The same is true in Cairo where there are fewer stations than larger Georgia cities.

The Quick Buys in Downtown Cairo is usually busy, but not Tuesday.

They ran out of gas Monday night and may not get more until Wednesday morning. Workers say customers are angry and they don't blame them. They're fed up too.

The crisis Hurricane Ike caused last week is still a burden for business and customers.

"Being this is a small town there are only a certain amount of convenience stores you can go to. And especially when we had that crisis where everybody was out of gas...nobody in Cairo had gas at all," says Manager Beverly Philllips.

The Piggly Wiggly down the street was low on gas, they were only selling Regular. But even through the crisis they're still offering customers a deal.

If you spend 50 dollars in their store on Wednesdays, you get 5 dollars off your gas purchase...if there's any gas left to give out. Feedback
