Arkansas' Gasoline Supply Improves Despite Spot Shortages

OCTOBER 11, 2005 - Posted at 7:51 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Officials say the gasoline supply situation is improving in Arkansas, though some stations may still briefly run out of some grades in the days ahead.

Suppliers say they are once again receiving gasoline via pipeline.  Now, trucks have to catch up on their delivery routes to supply the fuel to retail stations.

Operation of gasoline refineries on the Gulf Coast has been disrupted by hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Meanwhile, gas prices in some Region 8 communities have slowly but steadily fallen in the past week.  The average price of gas at most Jonesboro-area stations was $2.89 (9) per gallon at the start of last weekend, but some Jonesboro stations are offering gas for $2.76 (9) per gallon this morning.  Meanwhile in Paragould, where gas is typically about five cents per gallon higher than in Jonesboro, some stations had gasoline priced at $2.73 (9) per gallon last night.
