Sheetz says its fuel shortages could last days

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) -- The Sheetz convenience store chain says it could be several days before some of its outlets are restocked with gasoline after a supply disruption caused by Hurricane Ike.

The Altoona, Pa.-based company says 25 to 30 of its stores in parts of Maryland, North Carolina and Virginia are out of gas due to the temproray shutdown last week of the Colonial Pipeline from the Gulf Coast.

The American Automobile Association says the pipeline has restarted at a reduced rate.

The association says that until the supply issues are resolved, drivers can expect spot outages and relatively high prices at the pump.
