AAA says there's plenty of gas in Florida as Hurricane Dorian approaches. It's just a matter of getting it to the state's gas stations.
The auto and travel service group said Friday in a statement that retailers are having trouble keeping up with surging demand since gas stations can only hold so much fuel at a time.
AAA says Florida will continue to get shipments of gas as long as its ports stay open.
The primary delivery points are ports in Jacksonville, Tampa, and Fort Lauderdale. From the ports, the fuel is delivered to gas stations by tanker trucks.

Gov. Ron DeSantis has ordered state troopers to escort the trucks to the gas stations.
In South Florida, long lines formed at most gas stations, while many were closed after running out of fuel. AT the Costco in Davie, lines stretched around the block but police were on hand to keep things moving.
"I'm born and raised here so this is really nothing for me. I'm just trying to get prepared and not freaking out but I'm just trying to be prepared," fuel customer Kelly Holt said.
