Spotty gasoline outages persisted throughout the area Tuesday.  The south side of Aiken was empty, causing lines at stations in the northern part of the city. At least four Evans gas stations were out of fuel Tuesday.

Also out of fuel was Allen’s Country Store on Washington Road, a BP station at Washington Road and Evans Town Center Boulevard and the TPS location at Evans to Locks Road and Industrial Boulevard. All three stations ran out of gas Monday.

An employee at TPS said that Monday was the third time in a month the station had run out of fuel. She expected a shipment Tuesday evening.

“It’s so bad that even though we normally close at 11 p.m., we’re closing at 8 p.m. until we get more gas,” said Keri Petit, an employee of the BP station.
