Some stations in Corner Brook ran out or short of gas Monday and Tuesday.
CORNER BROOK Gas stations in Corner Brook have re-fueled after running short Monday evening and this morning.
A tanker delivered plenty of gas to Ultramar stations on Mount Bernard and Confederation Drive about mid-morning, and availability of gas is back to normal at both locations.
People at both stations reported demand escalated tremendously leading into and during Monday evening. They speculated people were preparing for the bad weather that was forecasted and planning ahead for any potential further power outages.
However, there were also claims there are shortages of drivers for tankers delivering fuel.
