ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Some Albany gas stations are on empty on Friday night, feeling the pressure from that Alabama gas pipeline leak.
Quick Shop and Liberty Food Mart are within a block of each other here on North Slappey and both were out of gas.
The owner of the nearby Quick Shop said he ran out of gas yesterday for the first time ever.
He said luckily gas only generates a small portion of his profits, but a lot of customers were surprised to find the stations pumps are off.
This is all because supplies are still short after the Colonial Pipeline in Alabama was shut down. It is now running again, but it could be a few more days before supply is back to normal.
According to Triple-A, the average gas price in Albany jumped 26-cents in the last week.
Albany now has the third highest prices of the 8 cities Triple-A tracks.
Both Liberty and Quick Shop expect to have gas back online on Monday.
Most stations in town have gas.
