The gas shortage that started two weeks ago with Hurricane Ike is causing sporadic shortfalls at Triangle stations and serious disruptions in western North Carolina.
In Asheville, city offices, community colleges, the civic center and all parks and recreation centers were closed as the situation got worse, and some of those facilities may stay closed into next week. In Charlotte, some stations rationed gas, and drivers waited hours for fuel. Fights broke out as drivers accused others of cutting in line.
This morning, AAA spokeswoman Carol Gifford said, however, things are looking better in Charlotte and the western part of the state.
"We think they’re looking up because we expect to receive some bigger shipments in over the weekend," Gifford said.
