The forced shutdown of several refineries in the Texas Gulf Coast due to Hurricane Harvey-induced flooding has created a delay in fuel delivery. What followed was an all-out panic among motorists mistakenly believing there was a coming gas shortage—despite the global oil glut and an abundant supply in Texas overall. But GasBuddy.com has come to the rescue, devising maps of stations that still have plenty of supply on hand—and those that are plumb out of the liquid commodity. According to the app's data, some 400 service stations in the San Antonio area were without fuel on Sunday—an astoundingly high number, but less than the nearly 575 fueling stations tapped out Saturday night. Austin, Dallas, San Antonio and other cities saw major lines at the gas pump as anxious motorists rushed to fill up their tanks before the supply ran out. Some drivers hoarded fuel in the process, driving up to the gas pump with industrial-size containers—further lessening the local supply. In San Antonio, Mayor Ron Nirenberg in public statements has pleaded at least twice with motorists to be considerate and gas up as they normally would rather than hoard fuel. But his entreaties so far have been to no avail, as the run at the gas pumps continued through the weekend. Hurricane Harvey: Social Media-Driven Panic Leads To Mad Rush For Gasoline In Texas By Sunday, the gas pandemonium was further calmed after State Rep. Lyle Larson's announcement of a major delivery of what amounts to liquid gold given the demand.
