Back to normal?

It appears the gas crunch that hit this city and much of the region late last week has eased, at least for now.

Gas suppliers report that transportation difficulties that resulted in supply problems last week have been addressed . 

That means most gas bars in the region have received at least some supply, and the shortages and closed pumps that some motorists faced should no longer be evident. 

But that doesn't mean the situation has completely returned to normal. 

There is still a shortage of premium grades of gas. But stations that spoke with TBT News on Monday say they expect things should return to normal over the next few days.

Ironically, if the issue was never mentioned in the media it probably wouldn't have escalated to the point that it did. For the gas companies though, I guess it got rid of a lot of premium fuel that they couldn't otherwise move at $1.49 or whatever they charge. Merry Christmas all! Drive safely!

But, if it wasn't mentioned in the media (regardless of the "panic" that was caused) people would have flipped cause they weren't informed lol

Merry Christmas

Ya gotta love news spinning. The last news story showed a pic of a gas station at the reserve. It is extremely busy all the time and the pic shows a lineup at all pumps. This story shows a gas station in town that is hardly ever that busy and there are two cars. LOL

The only issue was everyone went and fueled up because of a fake "shortage" so yes they ran out that night but there was never a real issue
