BATON ROUGE - Some drivers in Baton Rouge found their usual gas-up location shut down and blocked off Wednesday morning.

A handful of Exxon stations were reported closed with cones blocking the drive.

A spokesperson for the company said the stations were closed temporarily as part of their sale to a new owner. Back in 2008, ExxonMobil announced they planned to sell all 2,200 of their company-owned stations to be more competitive. The spokesperson said the stations were closed today so reps from Circle K, which purchased the stations, could walk through and inspect the properties.

The stations were planned to be open again later in the day.
