TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Circle K confirmed Monday that it's continuing to experience gas shortages at some of its Arizona locations.

According to a statement sent to KGUN 9 on March 3, the supply issue is due to the recent storms in Texas, as well as supply issues in California.

"Everyone on our team in Arizona and Circle K's global fuel department is working hard to correct the situation," said Tim Tourek, VP of Operations Grand Canyon Business Unit.

Specific locations were not listed in the statement.
