Current Survey by Visitors Bureau Staff Reports Minimal Disruption in Area’s Gas Supply

OUTER BANKS, N.C., Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ — As of 1 p.m. today, there are plenty of service stations in The Outer Banks of North Carolina that have a supply of gas for Labor Day weekend visitors, according to The Outer Banks Visitors Bureau.

In response to travelers’ concerns about gas supplies for the holiday weekend, the bureau has posted a running inventory of gas stations’ supply on its Web site www.outerbanks.org, which currently reports a majority of stations have gas and those with low supplies are expecting weekend deliveries. Marinas also are stocked with gas for boaters’ needs.

“Based on what we’re hearing from the front lines of our fuel service stations, there currently is no significant gas supply disruption in our area,” said Carolyn McCormick, the Bureau’s managing director, in announcing results of her staff’s ongoing fuel survey. “We’re welcoming travelers to our shores for what is forecast to be a beautifully sunny weekend.”

McCormick urged visitors to conserve energy by making smart travel decisions such as carpooling when possible, taking the shortest routes and using their most fuel-efficient vehicles.

The Bureau’s staff will be updating the fuel survey throughout the weekend, and visitors can log onto www.outerbanks.org or call (877) 629-4386 for the latest report on the area’s gas supply.
