Gas Shortage in Middle Tennessee??

Why does it appear that only some gas locations in Middle TN are short on or completely out of gas? There also seems to be more gas on the north side of Nashville verses the south side according to some news sources. Why is this? They say that Middle TN pipeline comes directly from Houston and it’s coming, it’s just slow. Memphis and north of Tennessee so it was reported seems to have plently of gas. So why the shortage around Nashville? People are lined up waiting to get into the stations that still have gas. Is it, that most of the people in the lines are just topping off, or all those people on empty? My husband and I are trying conserve gas in our tanks by not going places we really don’t need to go and combining trips to places we do need to make. We all have to get to work and the news said stations won’t be receiving gas until the middle of next week. I know there is a tanker downtown in the river ready to unload fuel but as of today, I don’t think that has started. I’m just curious if this has effected anyone else in Tennessee other than the Nashville area, or any other state having any shortages since the hurricane. Any feedback?

  1. If anyone knows of a station in Wilson County (Mt. Juliet, or Lebanon) that has gas, please let me know.

  2. I think we’ve created our own gas shortage. Yes, the pipeline is slow, but come on, folks. If we weren’t lined up for a good mile with police having to get out and control the chaos, would we really be that short on gas now? I honestly doubt it. The news reported possible gas shortages, so we over reacted, ran out and created our very own problems with the supply.

    And no one is really worried because the highways and streets are still packed with folks chuggin’ along doing their usual weekend activities.

  3. I agree, I think we have created our own problem. My car actually is almost on empty so i’ve been driving my husband’s truck and he has been driving his motorcycle to work.

  5. I guess it’s getting better a day at a time. I was holding off filling my tank up, so I finally went today and got gas at Kroger Providence. There was not a line. It appears that Kroger and BP in Mt Juliet have gas. I used my Kroger card and paid $3.84 for regular.

  6. I noticed today that Mapco and Citgo in Mt Juliet are still out.

  7. If the price per barrell is down around $70 or so, why are we still paying $3.00 per gallon? Doesn’t make sense. We’re still being screwed!
