Despite some gas station employees saying they've run out, the Georgia governor's office has said they haven't received any complaints of gas shortages within the state after a pipeline spill in central Alabama.

Gov. Nathan Deal's spokeswoman Jen Ryan said in a statement Sunday that they haven't received any complaints but will act accordingly if that changes.

Drivers in Atlanta area found some pumps completely dry or they had to pay 20 cents more because, according to a sign on the pump, the gas had to be pulled from Savannah.
