LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Because of the high demand for gas in the West Texas area, United Express, part of the United Supermarkets, was experiencing intermittent fuel supply delays. As of Thursday, the issue has been resolved, according to officials with the company.

Demand in the area was outpacing the regions available supply, Angelos Lambis, director of fuel and convenience for United Express, said in a news release. The company coordinated deliveries from partners around the region to help with increasing the gas supply.

"We are pleased to report that the internal issues experienced by our fuel suppliers have been resolved and that United Express has resumed receiving daily fuel orders consistently as of Thursday," said officials with the United Family.

"Unleaded and diesel fuel supplies are back up to 100% at United Express and we expect all of our locations to have full supplies of all fuel grades by Saturday.  We appreciate the patience and understanding of our guests as we worked through this supply issue to serve our guests in the best possible manner."

The Phillips 66 fuel refinery in Borger also cited issues between fuel demand and its supply. The Borger Refinery was also operating at less than normal standards, Joe Gannon, director of strategic communications with Phillips 66, said via email. 

Gannon says operations have been restored to the refinery and available supply to the markets are returning to normal.
