    Hi, I'm in northwest Illinois. No problems with gas here other than very high prices. Ammo shelves here mostly empty except for odd calibers. I usually buy on line out of Oklahoma, but still can't get reasonable 38, 9mm and 45acp

    Located in West Tennessee. I haven't noticed any shortages of fuel but I'm not sure what our distribution system consists of. Looking at the map that keeps showing up on national news, we are outside of the area affected by the pipeline shutdown.

    Haven't tried to buy ammunition or loading components since the madness started. I bought a 1K case of .45 ACP hardball last fall for breaking in a new Dan Wesson. I've probably loaded twice that with my own cast bullets and other components I have on hand.

    I'm in NY ,Long Island. Gas is about 2.99 for regular ,haven't seen many lines yet. As for ammo, haven't really shopped except for bird shot. Not too much around and what is around is very expensive.

    I hope this not the wrong place to post this , but I have an excess of small and large pistol primers and am in desperate need of 209 shotgun primers except Cheddite. For anyone in the greater Portland , OR area, I would be interested in trading straight across. 503 407 4029. If I have picked the wrong place, please let me know where, if anywhere this should have gone

    Western New York-Outside of Buffalo, no problem with gas, ammo few and far between. Local gun dealer will get maybe a few boxes in, but it's gone in 10 minutes.

    The Tulsa OK area has the same supply issues for ammo and reloading supplies as the rest of the country. I have friends in several states who are experiencing the same problems with ammo and reloading components. I believe the manufacturers are running at full capacity but the panic buying and hoarding is contributing to the problem. Ammo, primers and powder when you can locate it are selling at inflated prices with 9mm and 45 auto selling at nearly $1.00 per round. Cast bullets are hard to find and I've had to resort to casting bullets again. "Glad I held on to my furnace and Star sizer."

    No gasoline shortage in Oklahoma at this time and I just drove through Arkansas and Missouri this week and didn't have any issues getting gas. Prices for Regular gasoline is running around 2.69 Gal.

    No gas shortage...Reg @ $2.88...

    223 is plentiful at $0.59 per round for Win M193. LGS just received 96 cases of 800 rounds each. Component shipments come on a reg basis but sell out in a couple days. Still limits on primers and powder.

    Pacific Northwest, here, no gas shortages, but prices have been creeping up since Jan. 20. I stockpiled ammo some time ago and reload .45 and .38, so that hasn't been a problem, although glad I don't have to find components.

    No ammo.

    Daytona Beach Florida area. Ammo has been hard to find for a few months now. When you can find it, sales are limited to a few boxes per customer.
