As Hurricane Ian moves into the Gulf Coast, GasBuddy, an app that allows users to see real-time fuel prices, activated a fuel availability tracker. The feature helps drivers find gas in light of expected fuel shortages related to Ian.

Through user reports, GasBuddy will identify stations that don’t have gasoline, diesel or power to save drivers time. Stations with shortages will be highlighted in orange on the app’s map, and display icons will indicate which services aren’t available.

Users can report a station through the quick reporting button, which only appears if close to the station, or by editing the station detail page. You can download the app here.
