Hurricane Florence To Impact NC Gas Prices, Fuel Availability (2018-09-12 15:23:24)

Gas supplies are expected to decrease in North Carolina.

AAA Carolinas reports that due to Hurricane Florence, fuel deliveries are likely to be reduced, resulting in a limited supply at local gas stations.

According to the report, many gas stations in the state are already experiencing shortages from high volumes of tank-topping and panic buying. 

As a result, there could be a brief spike in gas prices, and price gouging laws are in effect.
