Tucson convenience stores running out of gas

Posted: Updated:

Some Southern Arizona residents say they're having a hard time finding gas in parts of Tucson.

The reason, convenience store employees say stations are having trouble getting gas from suppliers in Phoenix.

Various stores have been affected but the problem seems to have had the greatest impact at Circle K stores on the westside.

News 4 Tucson talked to one man at a Circle K near Oracle Rd. and River who almost ran out of gas.

"I think it's pretty upsetting man. Now, I'm going to have to go to another gas station. And I'm basically out of gas. Yeah, I don't think I'm going to make it across the street. Honestly, I'm not kidding," said the driver.

Convenience store officials did not return calls for comment. 

However, store employees say the shortage is a result of a distribution dispute.

When asked follow up questions, the employees did not have any more details.
