Gas shortage reaches Chapel Hill
To my surprise, the first four gas stations I passed near East Franklin Street and Estes Drive were completely out with the pumps covered up. Three were BP stations and one was a Kangaroo. I finally found an Exxon station open. I still hate patronizing Exxon (never forgave them for the Valdez spill) but I figured I couldn't afford to be picky today.
I was out early, about 7:30 am, so it is possible the other stations will get replenished today, but I thought it was notable to find them empty since I have never seen that before.
