Fuel was in high demand Thursday with several area stations running low while others were running out.

The heavy push at the pumps began early as motorists topped off their tanks in anticipation of Hurricane Ike. By late afternoon, at least two Bryan stations were sold out of everything except diesel.

There have also been reports off some stations inflating prices dramatically. To report suspected price-gouging, call the Texas Attorney General's Office at 1-800-252-8011.
