Does that include diesel too? Probably yes, since you said fuel, Dick hates it when I call diesel, gas.

In actuality, there was a shortage of diesel fuel when I left for work this AM, but regular unleaded was in abundance.
I called the MAPCO that I frequent early this afternoon and they told me that they had two truck loads of diesel delivered late morning and it was $3.85 gallon. They have to get diesel fuel out there as it would cripple the trucking industry in a heartbeat and so far the news has not reported any such thing.
I think they are trying to get regular gasoline to all stations and then will backfill the upper grades as they can since a lot of those signs are still blank.
My advice is to stay away from the small mom and pop stations and hit the bigger ones which have more of a turnaround of fuel.
The good news is that the weather is going to be absolutely gorgeous this weekend!
