On the Thursday before Ike got to Texas there was a run on gas in the Charleston area. It started going up that night, supposedly because the distributors weren't able to get all that they wanted. The coastal area of SC gets its gasoline through the port and I guess some of the ships had already been delayed due to the storm. I live 45 miles inland from Charleston and on Friday the truck stop by my house right off of I-26 raised their gas price from 3.69 to 4.79, but diesel came down .04 to 3.88. The Attorney General got on the news and said he was going to prosecute gougers but one station owner posted his invoice on the wall showing that he paid over 5.00/gallon but was only charging 4.79. There hasn't been a shortage in Charleston, yet, although there may be a random station that will run out.
That was three weeks ago and the prices still are up in the 3.75 range for gas. Diesel at the truck stop is 3.86
