Troopers advise motorists that gasoline supplies are scarce or unavailable south of the 57 mile marker on Interstate 65 and throughout many areas of southwest Alabama. Motorists heading to the state's southern section are encouraged to fill vehicle gasoline tanks well in advance of that area.
Troopers said Interstate 65 and other routes south are becoming increasingly congested with returning evacuee traffic and motorists could expect travel delays. Troopers urged motorists to drive with care and caution, practicing courtesy and patience in the heavy traffic.
Motorists are asked to stay tuned to their local news channels for traffic and travel updates and to contact state trooper posts only to report emergencies.
