Some Petro-Canada stations have completely run out of gas.
Suncor, the parent-firm of Petro-Canada, blames the shortage on refinery and distribution problems because of the wildfires in Fort Mac.
No one really seems to know when more gas will be available.
Dan McTeague from GasBuddy.com says it’s not just a Winnipeg problem.
“So this may very well extend form BC’s interior all the way to Thunder Bay, Ontario. The longer it goes of course it puts more pressure on the other three refineries,” he said.
A lot of the Petro Canada stations are open, but that’s only the convenience store. You’ll notice the yellow bags over the pump and a sign saying”Sorry, no gas here!.” Obviously in other wording.
The ones that have run out of gas have posted prices of 0.00 on their signs. The gas stations don’t have the one thing they’re supposed to have. Yikes!
