Plastic bags covered many of the pumps at gas stations throughout the county and state Friday.
Tina Mabry, BJ's Wholesale Club manager, said gas shipments have been impacted by Hurricane Ike.
"We can't get any shipments in because of the hurricane," she said.
The wholesale club in Cumming ran out of gas shortly after 1:30 p.m.
Gas prices have also gone up in anticipation of the hurricane, but with the shortage of fuel, it's evident motorists aren't taking chances of being caught without gas.
"There were lines backed up coming into the parking lot," she said. "There are a lot of gas stations out."
AAA Auto Club South predicted last week the hurricane would drive fuel prices upward.
"The uncertainty of the path of Hurricane Ike...could place upward pressure on oil and gasoline prices if the storm hones in on the petro-chemical coast of the Northern Gulf of Mexico," said Randy Bly, director of community relations.
