I left my home in a coastal community near Galveston to ride the storm out in Spring,Texas.

But now my fuel tank is near empty and I can't find any stations in the area that have fuel for my trip back home when this is over.

So this is to anyone on the North side of Houston close to the I45 corridor. If you know where any gas stations are that have fuel left please post up.

Thanks in advance.

Because I still got power.

And I am looking for gas so I can go back and see what I have left when it's over. And keep looters out of what I have left.

Never let your tank fall below half. Being on E is a bad feeling.

When evacing an area all or just about all the gas stations will run out of gas if they are on the main route.

Best bet is to stick to back roads and gas up at the really small towns. At least this appeared to be the best bet based on reporters stories. Some of the smaller town stations were reporting that their sales were normal to slow.

Rules learned so far when evacing:
1. leave early
2.have a full tank and at least 5 5gallon gas cans full
3. travel the back roads to avoid traffic if possible
4. carry 5 days of food and water
5.bring the fully stocked rv
6. carry fire power for just in case.

Leave him alone. He just transferred there last year from NYC.
