Gas Buddy is indicating no real outages in that area except for Diesel fuel in some spots. Unless you run diesel in your bike you should be ok.The "fuel shortage" is partly (mainly??) to blame due to greedy motorists........racing to the pumps with 4-8 5-gallon containers to stockpile the fuel. For what?? Some analysts are predicting the fuel supply to stations will be "back to normal" within a week.........unless this reckless hoarding continues.
But gas stations are dealing with what researchers in behavioral economics and neuroscience have labeled “the scarcity mind-set,” said Camelia M. Kuhnen, professor of finance at the Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina.
“When some resource is scarce, even just in the short term, people tend to get tunnel vision and fixate on how they can get more of that specific resource,” she said. “Basically, the brain focuses on solving very narrowly the problem of ‘how do I get more of the thing that is scarce?’"
Kuhnen said that for motorists in North Carolina and other states experiencing shortages, “the broader picture that is not seen by people lining up for gas for hours is that in a couple of days, the supply is expected to be restored close to normal levels. This scarcity problem will go away, and in a week’s time, we won’t even think about it anymore.”
