Many gas stations are out of gas across the country, spiking higher prices and long lines. Several drivers have expressed frustration after going from pump to pump to find a station with gas at a good price.
There is a tech solution to locating gas. The GasBuddy app collects information like prices and availability from gas stations and allows users to pinpoint which stations have gas. You can also check under our website's traffic tab for local prices.
While the app has up to date information, there is a slight delay so it may be worth calling the gas stations to verify before heading to the pump.
The average gas price in Columbia has jumped to $1.96 on Sunday, according to Gas Buddy. The national average has increased 2.7 cents per gallon in the last week to $2.20.
