Gas prices rising across metro Atlanta as drivers hunt for stations with fuel

More and more gas stations across metro Atlanta are starting to run out of fuel and those with gas are seeing long lies and rising prices.

This comes following the cyber attack on Colonial Pipeline making gasoline supply across the Southeast more scarce than normal.


Channel 2′s Michael Seiden went to several counties across the metro area to see just how high prices have gone.

In Douglas County, a gas station on Chapel Hill Rd. listed a gallon of gas for $2.89. Seiden said the crowds weren’t too large, but the station was still busy.

A Texaco on Lawrenceville Highway in DeKalb County had gas for $2.85, but the Tucker gas station didn’t have a rush of people either.

News Chopper 2 saw long lines outside a Kroger in North Fulton County earlier Tuesday.

Prices, however, could change at any moment and really depend on where you live.
