    Right now there is a oil glut. This is for two reasons: Pre-coronavirus over production. It seems that Russia and other major oil producers were upping production or at least not reducing production. The second reason is that travel was greatly curtailed in all forms. So the fuels derived from petroleum were not in demand. Production found storage areas full and not place to put what they were making.

    Now there is an uptick. Gas prices that were under two dollars a gallon (like were I live it got down to 1.70) are see increased prices at the pump because the demand has caught up with supply.

    So no there will not be (have not been) any gasoline shortages cause by the virus.

    No, i don't think so that we will have gas shortage. In these days, most of the automobile industries are shifting from gas to electric.

    i think no, the gas supply is not much influenced, plus, I personally think the demand of the gas maybe diminishing

    There is currently a surplus of oil, so a shortage is unlikely. People are are also driving less right now which is causing there to be a lower demand. While it is unlikely, it is possible if things got bad enough with the virus that refinement and transportation of gas could be effected causing a shortage at the gas pumps.

    No, that's never been an issue, since people are driving less.

    Do you mean gasoline???  If so - I am struck by the fact that with people driving much less than pre-COVID,  with many fewer airline flights, with no cruise ships running . . . . less of virtually everything . . . . my local gas station's prices are 20 cents a gallon higher than pre-COVID.  BS explanation:  refineries are switching to winter blends  (a real big deal here in Florida - not).  And what about all that oil sold for the seveal days at a negative price (ie tankers were paid to take it) - didn't see much of a blip from that, did we?  THIEVES!!!

    .

    So YES - as soon as the advertising liars can think of a good story, there will be a shortage of gasoline . . . and higher prices.
