Halifax gas stations facing weekend fuel shortage
Most gas stations are carrying premium fuel and are still stocked with diesel
The price of gas in Halifax is the lowest it's been since winter, but drivers wanting to fill their tanks this weekend may have trouble finding a station that's stocking it.
Several Halifax gas stations are running out of fuel.
Wayne Pace, who owns an Esso Station in Tantallon says the shortage has nothing to do with gas prices.
"The bulk plant out in Dartmouth is out of supreme and they're out of regular so until they get replenished by the tanker that is supposed to come sometime today, fuel is going to be in a shortage," he said.
Pace says because it is a weekend and there are a limited number of distribution trucks, he believes it may take until Monday for stations to again be fully restocked.
Most gas stations are still selling diesel and premium-grade gas.
