Prices aren't the only concern when it comes to gasoline, supply is quickly becoming an issue.

Sunshine Trucking Company in Bowling Green says its drivers are now limited to only $50 worth of gas at most major truck stops, which is slowing down their deliveries and costing thousands a day in lost business.

"Sometimes you might get one to get 350, but you're talking somewhere between 300 and 350 miles. And if you go down the road and the next place is out, you're just sitting you're messed up for good," said David Etheridge, a dispatcher for Sunshine Trucking.

Sunshine Trucking and several other local companies have offered a truck and driver to bring relief supplies to the coast, but they say it will be at least next week before they can reach those in need.
