View Full Version : Is GAS available in Lancaster???

Due to the hurricane, gas here in southern Illinois is now $5.00 and up, we are being told. People in my community panicked and bought two of our stations dry! What is the situation like in Lancaster?

Gas is available at $3.49 to $3.69 as of 45 min ago.

We actually saw gas prices going up from 3.99 to 4.15 in Ohio as we were headed this way on 70 today. We saw consistent prices around $4 till we got to Penns. I guess those putting on the Stude meet have the power to keep prices down until after the meet. We are on the western edge of the turnpike tonight and prices are 3.6x. No problem finding gas around here and no lines that we saw.

We are just mosying along to Lancaster and are staying in Fredrick, Maryland this evening. I have no shortage of gas anywhere since we left home. In Fayetteville (NC) there were a few stations without gas to sell, especially regular.

We drove from Vermont to Scranton, PA today,(Scranton is about 130 miles north of Lancaster), gas at home and here was $3.59/gal. It was in the $3.70's in parts of New York. No word of shortages.

There is [u]NO SHORTAGE</u> of gas in Lancaster. Gas averages about $3.49. There are a good number of Studebaker folks here already. Don't let the fun pass you by....come and join us.

I just got here. Gas is $3.49 at the Wawa across the street from my hotel. I saw it for $3.45 in York, but it was well over $4.00 in parts of VA. However, I did see diesel for $3.78 in VA.
