As many across throughout Texas are flocking to the gas pump, Sunoco LP who distributes motor fuel to Stripes Convenience Stores has issued a statement.

"The refined product infrastructure in the Gulf Coast was significantly impacted by the storm. In - fact nearly 25 percent of the nation's refinery capacity was shutdown. The Houston and Corpus Christi refining markets supply most major geographic regions in Texas as well as the Southeastern U.S. up into the Mid-Atlantic. We, as well as all of our partners and suppliers across the U.S. fuel supply chain, are working diligently to return full services as quickly as possible."
