Gas Shortage?

We plan to travel from Charleston, WV to Myrtle Beach, SC on Saturday, Sept. 20th.

We usually stop in Wytheville, VA for gas. We are hearing rumors of a shortage. Does anyone know if this is true?

From what I understand they should be opening the gas pipeline soon. Don't worry! :)

Gas is down to $3.77 by my house, so hopefully it keeps falling.

I'm also going to MB this weekend from Charlotte. Don't know of areas north, but shortages in Florence, SC up into Charlotte. I've been told by my relatives that areas east of Raleigh are not having shortages like we are. I called a gas station in MB this am and they knew nothing of any shortages!

I googled "gas stations in ______" on various towns in between and found ph #'s and called gas stations.

Good luck!
