TUCSON, AZ (KOLD News 13) - Out of gas!

Drivers across southern Arizona are learning this weekend that their go-to gas stations are out of fuel.

Employees at two Circle K locations in Tucson confirmed that they were out of gas Sunday

Management at a third location posted a sign to the front door apologizing for the inconvenience.

The sign stated:

"Due to unforeseen circumstances, this Circle K has run out of fuel. There is no unleaded or premium unleaded fuel to pump. The only fuel available to use is diesel. Circle K apologizes to all affected customers and is working hard on getting this issue fixed."

A message to Circle K’s regional office had not been returned as of 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

Get an EV and ignore articles like this.


Of course you are lucky to be able to go for 200 miles with an EV, then take several hours to recharge..


My Tesla goes 259 miles/charge. Other models get up to 335. Tesla supercharger gives you a half charge in twenty minutes. I rarely use them: I charge overnight in my garage. Once per year visit to service center for checkup & maintenance. Plenty of new models to choose from: Hyundai, Kia, Chevy Bolt, Nissan. More coming soon from other manufacturers.
Quiet, instant torque, fuel costs one-quarter or less than gasoline. Try it, you'll like it.
And how often do you drive more than 200 miles/day?


Many Circle Ks around Phoenix have also run out of fuel over the weekend (beginning on Thursday, if I recall). It was particularly severe on Friday and Saturday. It seemed to be only the Circle Ks and Frys gas stations (that take Frys VIP cards for fuel discounts). Not sure if Frys (Kroger) had anything to do with this, but I wonder.
