gas prices in Atlanta

Last week, I was filling up my car at a RaceTrac gas station in Buckhead when I noticed a local TV news crew interviewing a customer at the next pump. At the time I had no clue that Atlanta was in the midst of a gas shortage. I didn't notice any long lines or fistfights at the pumps that day. Well, that might change this week as local gas stations run out of gas.

According to the AJC.com, there are only a handful of gas stations that still have gas in Atlanta after a pipeline leak in Alabama last week.

The Metro area is feeling the pinch as gas stations hike prices to gouge their customers.

Gov. Nathan Deal signed an order banning gas price gouging at the pumps last week.

Be prepared for long lines at the pump and maybe a few fistfights as people naturally panic when they hear the words "gas shortage".

But help is on the way. Gas tankers are lining up to service stations that ran out over the weekend. So have patience.

If you think you're going to run out of gas before you make it to the pump, make sure you purchase only approved gas containers that meets OSHA's strict requirements for transporting gasoline.

The AJC compiled a list of the stations in Atlanta that are still selling gasoline.

The average price of gas per gallon in the north metro area is $2.47 according to Gasbuddy.com.

    That gas station owner up top needs to be locked up. Taking advantage of people during such a hard time.

  • Sucker Free

    gas shortage...I call manufactured crisis

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Exactly .....

  • harley_quinn2.0

    These are problems I don't need. That premium gas will break your back.

  • missmiami305

    omg let me fill up

  • Buttercup

    I passed by so many stations this morning with bags on all the pumps and no prices displayed. Why am I at work? I should be conserving gas.

  • Buttercup

    I paid $3.09 Saturday morning. I topped off before getting back into the city late last night.

  • Jusstlookn for Social Grace

    Spoke to my Father in Law in NC He said he filled up several containers and filled his truck up. He found a station that was not gouging prices. YET.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Buckhead gas prices stay high literally ... Downtown period .... I would drive my azz to Gresham road for cheaper prices and even there still to me high... Inner city period..

  • Incog-knee-gress

    manufactured or not its real for me with this 45 minute each way commute. Yall pray for MEH.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Yes...

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Got ya ?

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    Gas was like $2.16 on Friday, and by Saturday night it was $2.47. It's definitely price-gouging, since the gas stations already has the gas in their containers already, so it's not like their cost went up.
    #annoying #ripoffcity

  • Incog-knee-gress

    This is where we had to end up getting gas from yesterday. Pops area. 30 minutes from the house. bf called back and told me to bust a MOVE yesterday morn. No gas in our part of Raleigh, most of Garner, and parts of Clayton. Its BAD.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Wow. I thought the shortage was just in Atlanta.

  • Mama Bear

    Yes! That's why I went back to regular years ago, when the gas prices went up.

  • She_ShowOut

    I had to pay 3.29 for premium last night on Fulton Industrial....bastids!!!

  • Sucker Free

    We got you ?

  • LabellaMior

    Man I work in the middle east and it roughly cost about 4KD or $13 bucks to fill up your car here!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    In the 1970s there was a severe gas shortage in America. People were fighting at the pumps, siphoning gas from cars, killing each other over gasoline. It was crazy! I hope we don't go through that again.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    I wish

    "Fuel supplies in at least five states — Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee and the Carolinas — have been threatened by a pipeline spill in Alabama."

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    That pipline that burst transports gas to few southern states. So it's a few states that are affected right now .

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Regular is not good for my German built car.

  • SameoleJ

    I hope everyone affected have a lock on your gas tanks. I know it can be broken open, but at least it will make them perhaps think twice.

  • SameoleJ

    I just mentioned that I hope everyone had a lock on their gas cap/tanks...because of siphoning.

  • thick1tyme

    Nope, it's hit us hard here in Nashville as well.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    I almost died when I had a car that only took premium. That was back when it was $4 a gallon too.

  • She_ShowOut

    Didn't they declare Georgia and Alabama state of emergency to avoid gas gauging and running out of gas? http://www.cbsnews.com/news/fuel-supplies-in-at-least-5-states-threatened-by-alabama-gasoline-pipeline-spill/

  • MissyJ

    Trickin in Dubai?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I might have to drive to Florida to get my gas.

  • JerseyMom

    My brother called me from Jersey to tell me it was a bad shortage in GA. Blank stare. I didn't know. My husband and I filled up both cars yesterday. I went to 3 different station before I found one with gas.

  • LabellaMior

    Hunny no...not this one...I'm a contractor hun! I works for my coins! U tried it!

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    $3.29 for premium gas near my job here. Makes me glad I dont drive a car that uses premium gas.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I didn't know either. I'm the type who waits until the needle is way past E before I fill up. I was driving on fumes when I pulled into the station.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    I get anxiety when it's at a quarter of a tank.

  • SameoleJ

    Stop playing around with that fuel pump, Sandy!! They are expensive to replace and tend to go when you have an almost full tank. Mechanic be cussing you clear out for having to lift that thing. #GUILTYOFTHIS

    Wait until you have to replace a headlight or taillight then you'll trade in your ride for a Japanese or American car.

  • MissyJ

    I just got to second base and you brought us both home ??

  • She_ShowOut

    True. It's not helping now either...most of the Quick Trips are out of gas right now.

  • Finding Forever…

    I shall NOT complain & be thankful that there is gas here. For now, I guess. I won't complain on the price neither...well try. Side comment...the fool (suspect) that set up those crock pots Ahmad Khan Rahami (28-year-old) is in custody. Shockingly he was shot in the arm while others are killed for far less...but anywho...

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Thanks. Now I have to clean my computer screen.

  • JerseyMom

    I remember that it went by you license plate. If you plate ended with an odd number, you went on one day and those plates that ended in even numbers went on another day. I was very young, but I remembered.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Hell I pay 3.79 for premium in Chicago. The burbs 3.25 or more.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    You're speaking from experience?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    And I think you were only allotted 1 gallon of gas.

  • LabellaMior

    Yep...it's very cheap..no matter what kind of car you drive...ion miss paying US prices for gas.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Headlights only 150.00 on my BMW.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    When I first got my beetle I was putting premium in my whip... Had to get my car towed and have it pumped out... My car take regular only... Anything else will mess it up... Now my old Acura was premium only... But not my beetle

  • LabellaMior

    Nah but you seem eager just give you a heads up!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Volkwagon or Audi

  • Sucker Free

    I learned in antitrust class there is no difference between regular and premium gas tho...

  • She_ShowOut

    My old car could indeed damn tell too. How IDK. But the Light wld come on. Damn car stalling out. It was super ugly I put regular in.

  • MookieFly

    Lmao my gas is 2.09, cheaper in the city outskirts. Thank you Lord for the savings!

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    I'm not a Benz fan, but I've been badly wanting to step up to an Acura or an Audi... but they both require premium or midgrade fuel, so I'm just going to stick with my Honda for now.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    My car takes $45 to fill up… in Buckhead gas prices.

  • LabellaMior

    Nah...I'm not offended by anyone's right...do as he/she please ?

  • Finding Forever…

    A damn bullet to the arm. A JOKE. Then pushed his a$$ on a damn stretcher. Should've let the pig bleed out AND walk to the ambulance. Family was selling chicken too. This story just gets better & better.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    My car doesn't even have a light. Lol.

  • JerseyMom

    I panic if my needle is below a half tank, but so happy when my gas tank is full. I have a fear of running out of gas.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I'm sure your car says premium only if it's a Benz too .... I drive my dad mini Cooper from time to time (BMW) takes premium only... Expensive to fill up...

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I'm surprised that Sandy hasn't written an article blaming Obama and Hillary for the gas shortage.

  • Sucker Free

    Yo car has discernment ?

    I ran out of gas last month. Thank God Prince Williams was in the car with me. He lectured me about my gas tank on E as soon as he got in. I told him the needle wasn't past E yet, and to shut up about it. 10 minutes later, we ran out of gas on the expressway. He was so mad. But he got out and walked to get gas. He's a great friend. ?

  • leapyearpisces

    my mom and dad were telling me about that, they said here in NC you had to go on designated days based on the first letter of your license plate , like A-M would go on Mondays, Wednesday, Thursday and N-Z would go on Tuesdays, Fridays, etc.....

  • Incog-knee-gress

    To the moon

  • harley_quinn2.0

    If gas ever got to $10 a gallon, I'd be on the bus ?????

  • She_ShowOut

    Salaries are higher in Chicago than in Atlanta...so it offsets the .50 higher price in gas. However, the property taxes there are completely unjustified and do not align with income.

  • LibraGirlonly

    That's my next car ? 2017!!!

    Not exactly. Gov. Deal had to enact price controls on gas. Some stations in College Park were charging $4.59 per gallon this weekend.
