PHOENIX (3TV/CBS5) -- At least one Circle K gas station in Phoenix is running empty on gas. 

Arizona's Family confirmed the Circle K gas station at 7th Avenue and Bethany Home Road was out of fuel Monday.  

A sign on the pump read: Dear customer, we are temporarily out of all fuel at this Circle K location due to supply issues out of our control. 

But as of Tuesday morning, people were seen fueling up at the gas station.

Two other gas stations were confirmed by Arizona's Family to be out of gas:

• Central and Missouri avenues

• 27th and Glendale avenues

In a statement on Monday, Circle K said the fuel outages across Arizona were due to a "perfect storm" of unforeseen circumstances.

Circle K said issues with its pipeline, supply source and ethanol distribution were all causes for the shortage. 

Circle K believes it will take "several more days" before they are back to full fuel capacity.
