Diesel Shortage Rumors
At the gas station.

At this morning’s Laclede County Commission meeting, Office of Emergency Management Director Randy Rowe briefed the Commissioners on recent rumors that Missouri may experience a shortage of Diesel Fuel. After that meeting, Rowe told Regional Radio News that though the rumors are swirling, there is no need to panic.

Rowe also added that instead of talking about rumors, its important to stick to the facts.

The Office of Emergency Management finally said major stockpiling of diesel fuel would only hurt the situation, and the best solution is to remain conservative in diesel consumption whenever and wherever possible.
