Alabama pipeline spill leads to Georgia gas station closures

ATLANTA — The governor of Georgia said Sunday his office hasn’t received complaints of gas shortages within the state after a pipeline spill in central Alabama but some gas station employees have said they’re out.

Gov. Nathan Deal said through a spokeswoman that he would “act accordingly” if the situation changes.

“As of now … we’ve not received any complaints. If that changes on Monday or at any time in the coming days, the governor’s office will act accordingly,” Deal spokeswoman Jen Ryan said in a statement Sunday.

Some gas stations in Georgia, however, have been without gas as early as Friday.

An employee at a QuickTrip in Alpharetta, gasless since Saturday, said they don’t expect to refill until Wednesday or Thursday.
