cheap petrol in Melrose Park

ABC-7 (Ben Bradley):
In Melrose Park, motorists are lining up a block away for gas priced at $2.85 a gallon. However, in Northwest Indiana, there was no fuel to buy -- whatever the price -- for a short time at three gas stations because of a slowdown of fuel shipments from local refineries.

And the meat of the piece:
Four oil refineries supply the Chicagoland area. Three of them get their crude oil from Canada instead of the Gulf Coast. Despite that, ABC7 has confirmed some sporadic fuel shortages being blamed on Hurricane Katrina. At the stations that still have fuel, some owners are dropping their prices to draw crowds.
