Download This App To Find Out What Gas Stations Have Fuel


Okay, first things first...STOP PANIC BUYING GAS. As you're aware, one of the largest gas pipelines in America got cyberattacked last week and was forced to temporarily shut down, meaning gas will have to be trucked in to much of the country for a few days. Experts are literally saying that the only way there will be a gas shortage is if people panic buy gas. And what are people doing? Panic Buying gas.

That said, for those of us who actually DO need to fill up our tanks, it's becoming more and more challenging to find service stations that aren't empty. There's an app called GasBuddy that's set up a "Fuel Availability Tracker" to help you find who's empty and track down who's got gas so that you don't waste time (and fuel) driving around town

GasBuddy works sort of like Waze does for traffic. Users report when a gas station is out of gas or power, and also update the price. If you have the app, you can search around the map and find somewhere to fill up the tank.

The app is free and it's available in both the iOS and Google Play stores. They also have just a regular website you can use.

Also, in case I haven't mentioned it...STOP PANIC BUYING GAS.
