A temporary, nationwide additive supply on gasoline will affect CITGO gas stations in North Augusta.

The shortage may last through the end of the year and is happening across the industry, according to a news release.

According to CITGO, gasoline supplies in certain areas of the country may not currently meet TOP TIER or CITGO TriClean detergency specifications. A notification will be displayed at the pump of the additive shortage.

CITGO branded gas stations may feel the effect later with gasoline supplied by third-party terminals. All gas currently sold meets EPA additive requirements.

Other stations affected by this shortage are in Chattanooga, Tenn., Greensboro, N.C., and Fort Smith, Ark.

CITGO is based in Houston, TX, and is the fifth largest refinery in the United States carrying a combined crude capacity of approximately 769,000 barrels-per-day.
