Experts on Monday said 2% of stations in South Carolina are out of gas and nearly 20% in Myrtle Beach are out. “It is really important for people not to panic and hoard gasoline. A lot of this shortage is due to people panicking, running out and fueling up. People should stay at home for the next couple of days, avoid using the car unless absolutely necessary,” Head of Petroleum Analysis at GasBuddy, Patrick De Haan said. De Haan added prices should not be impacted by the shutdown.
