Gasoline Updates

  • NEW! On NHK news right now, it said that there is enough gasoline in the country and that they want drivers to settle down and not hoard gas. (Updated March 13, 2011 at 17:51)
  • According to the Eneos website, because of the fire at the plant in Sendai and because of problems with delivering gas, there may be gas shortages in some areas. (Updated March 13, 2011 at 15:31)
  • Gas stations are extremely crowded, so it is hard to get gas. People are saying we may run out. This is unconfirmed as I am not sure how to check this, so please treat the information about gas supplies as a rumour for now. (Updated March 13, 2011 at 14:34)

    From the Asahi Website, late 3/16.
    Of nine petroleum processing plants in Kanto-Tohoku, six were knocked out, including the crucial one in Sendai. However, three (Yokohama, Kawasaki, Chiba) should re-open in the next several days. Also, the holding tank in Iwate will reopen tomorrow allowing supply to reach Sendai easier (until now it had to come from Akita).
