ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

The City of Odessa is advising residents to remain calm regarding the gasoline supply.

We're told that there is currently an ample gasoline supply, according to Texas Railroad Commissioner Ryan Sitton.

A panicked rush of drivers to the pumps will deplete the immediate supply of gasoline giving the appearance of a long-term shortage. The perception leads to panic and fear that often results in negative behavior and illegal activity.
