CONCERNS ON FUEL SUPPLY
and Lone Star Food Stores would like to educate everyone on the current fuel
shortage that we are experiencing. The shortage is a result of a southern
refinery shutting down temporarily during the storms of Hurricane Harvey.
We want everyone to know that we still have access to plenty of fuel – the
lines that our delivery trucks are waiting in are just much longer because of
the refinery shut down.
There is NO outage. There is fuel. Each delivery is
just taking longer right now.
We want to assure everyone that we have all of our delivery
trucks out running 24 hours resupplying our local communities in Northeast
Texas and South Eastern Oklahoma.
We ask all of our neighbors make fuel purchases as you normally
would – the worst thing we can do as a community is all of us showing up at one
time to get fuel. This is creating an additional challenge for each
If the community reacts that way – then we may cause the outage
at an individual location.
We do not expect the shortage to last any longer than 1 week.
