Gas Lines in NC
Advertisements [?]

and around the corner past the interstate:

And, another one:

Most stations are out or closed. Those that have ANY fuel have lines like these until it's gone. People have been waiting in lines for up to an hour and a half. Police have been at these stations to direct traffic and prevent fights(there have been some-one with a baseball bat).

We are told it could be two more weeks before things are back to normal.
