SAN ANTONIO (Aug. 31, 2017) — Mayor Ron Nirenberg on Thursday reassured San Antonio area residents that the region is not facing a gasoline shortage, but instead has experienced a brief hurricane-related delay in fuel production.

“San Antonio, there is no gas shortage,” Mayor Nirenberg said. “As the result of delayed refinery operations caused by Hurricane Harvey, some stations have run low on gas.”

Nirenberg urged residents, “Please purchase gas as you would normally do. Don’t be misled by social media, which is causing people to panic and purchase more gas than necessary.”

Refinery startup is currently underway at Valero’s Three Rivers facility, the company reported. Valero said it is continuing the refinery startup process in Corpus Christi.

The Texas Food & Fuel Association stated Thursday that residents should be assured that fuel supply in Texas is being addressed by both public and private partners to ensure refinery slowdown has a minimal impact on the state.
