With Hurricane Barry starting the 2019 hurricane season, GasBuddy is sharing how quickly gas stations typically run out of fuel…and get replenished again.


The study focused on the highest-impacted areas of Hurricanes Irma, Florence and Michael.

In the case of Florence and Michael, gas stations first reported a fuel deficiency shortly after emergency declarations. Nearly 20% of gas stations in Gainsville, Florida were reported to have no gasoline before the emergency declaration was announced.

After Hurricane Irma, GasBuddy showed refueling efforts made a significant impact in Gainsville.

After Hurricane Michael, some gas stations sat without fuel for 17 days.
