Hurricane preparation is nothing new to Floridians, but the uncertain path and tremendous size of Hurricane Irma has put more stress on the state's gasoline stations than during previous storms.
With Irma, a rare Category 5 storm potentially bound for many different parts of the state, drivers lined up at stations across Florida. That created a statewide run on gasoline and other supplies, making it hard to keep stations supplied.
Governor Rick Scott announced Thursday he is working with the White House, FEMA and the Department of Energy to refuel gas stations across Florida.
"I spoke to them about waving the federal rules and regulations to get as much fuel as possible to our state and through our ports," Scott said in a press briefing.
