A statement from the office of Gov. Mike Easley today announced that Gulf Coast pipelines are operating at normal capacity, though it will take a week for the new fuel to reach North Carolina. Meanwhile, 50 to 100 extra tankers a day continue to come into Western North Carolina and Charlotte to deal with the shortage.
A host of county, city and state officials asked citizens to stay calm at a press conference this afternoon, stating that while steps are being taken to relieve the gas shortage, supplies would be spotty for at least another week, though more fuel is coming into the region. Mayor Terry Bellamy also criticized the state government for slow action, while state Rep. Charles Thomas said large oil companies "are begging us to regulate them."
Long gas lines and hours of waiting to fill up aren't over yet. According to a release from Buncombe County this morning, "local distributors report that it will be at least another week before fuel is flowing regularly in our area." The release also asks citizens to not panic and conserve when possible.
