FORT SMITH, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — As a result of temporary, nationwide additive supply constraints, gasoline supplies in certain areas of the country including Fort Smith may not meet detergency specifications.
According to a news release from CITGO, the company’s gas stations in Fort Smith will display a notification regarding the issue at the pump.
The release says the additive shortage is an industry-wide issue affecting many companies. It says it may last through the end of the year.
CITGO-operated terminals will remain unaffected by the additive shortage for now, but some of the gasoline supplied by third-party terminals for sale at CITGO-branded stations may not currently meet detergency specifications.
