Gas shortage hits Thomson-McDuffie County stations
The 10 pumps at Raceway are covered, indicating that they are out of service. Raceway in Thomson ran out of gas at 2 p.m. on Sept. 19.
Thomson and McDuffie County gas stations and convenience stores are feeling the impact of a fuel shortage that is spanning the CSRA.
The burst of a Colonial Pipeline in Alabama leaked more than 250,000 gallons of fuel before it was detected Sept. 9 and the leak threatened fuel supplies in at least six states -- Alabama, Georgia, the Carolinas, Tennessee and Virginia.
The Colonial Pipeline system transports more than 2.66 million barrels of fuel in two pipes. The leak in one pipeline caused it to be shut down, and it caused a ripple effect of shortage in Georgia from Atlanta to the CSRA.




Proper posting of house numbers is important to medical response and safety says county inspector
Fire, police and emergency calls occur every 23 seconds, and people want a quick response to their needs. But help may be delayed if your house number or business address is not visible from the street.
A building official and county fire inspector says that over the past year he has noticed that many city and county residents do not have their addresses properly posted.
“Every second counts in an emergency,” said Jimmy Crawley.
