Where to Find Gas in Dallas: Updates About ‘Shortage’ in North Texas

Although there’s not a technical gasoline shortage, so many people are buying gas at once in Dallas that some people are reporting problems finding gas stations that have gasoline in supply or don’t have super long lines.

These disruptions should be over in about a week or two, DallasNews.com reported, once refineries that are shut down resume operations.


Reports from the Area

Gas prices are expected to temporarily surge in the Dallas area, thanks to panicked buying and travel for Labor Day weekend. If you want to see the latest reports on gas prices in the area, check out WFAA’s gas prices map here.

GasBuddy also lists the top 10 lowest gas prices in the Dallas area here.

You might not want to try Buc-ee’s. Last night, Buc-ee’s reported that all their stores were either out or very low on fuel. “Supply is short and waits are long,” they said on Facebook. “We are doing what we can, but expect outages everywhere.”


Use Gas Buddy Online or Via Mobile App

Gas Buddy is a gasoline availability tracker that works from crowdsourcing reports from other users, and it’s very popular right now. If you visit a station and find that it has fuel or it doesn’t have fuel, mark that online or in the app. You can use Gas Buddy online to track fuel availability here. It has mobile apps here, but to access gas availability via the mobile app, you’ll need to go to the amenities tab, scroll over, and choose “has fuel.”

Gas Buddy is a great app as long as people keep updating it with the information they find. People are marking stations as “no fuel,” “has fuel,” “no power,” or “unknown.” This can give you real-time details about gasoline status as you need it. Just remember: if you’re using the map online, you won’t see the green/red/gray/black marks until you’ve zoomed in closer to the location where you’re looking.

If you use the app, do everyone a favor and update it with the results you’ve found too.

Note: Some people have contacted Heavy to share that GasBuddy isn’t always updating fast enough for them. If you’re really low on gas, you might call the gas station that GasBuddy shows has availability first, to make sure the information is up-to-date.

Fear mongering from news is partly to blame. The rest goes to all of the people naive enough to listen. This was entirely preventable.
