(ABC 6 News) – A Kasson employee confirmed Monday that several Casey’s General Store locations in SE MN are out of gas, following shipment delays.

The winter storm conditions Thursday-Saturday and continued road closures meant trucks carrying unleaded fuel were unable to reach the Kasson, Rochester, and Stewartville stores, the employee said Dec. 26.

ABC 6 News visited Casey’s in Stewartville, which did have gas at about noon Monday.

“We’re having to drive a little bit further, to be able to find some gas elsewhere so it’s definitely an inconvenience at a minimum,” one customer we spoke with said.

The Kasson store had E85 and diesel fuel available, but had been out of unleaded gasoline since Saturday, she added.
