KEY LARGO, Fla.- Expect to wait in line for gasoline in South Florida - if you can find a station that still has gas.

Lines stretched around 50 cars deep at a gas station in Cooper City, which is southwest of Fort Lauderdale, by 5:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The station had been out of fuel on Tuesday night, but received an overnight delivery. Workers at a station in Doral, near Miami, put yellow caution tape around pumps Wednesday morning after running out of gasoline.

Local news outlets reported both long lines and stations that had no gas across South Florida.
