Gas Shortage - Communication #2

May 14, 2021 4 p.m.

With the weekend fast approaching we wanted to provide you with an update on the gas shortage on Hatteras Island. According to Gas Buddy and local communications, most gas stations on the Island have fuel with continued deliveries that should ease demand.


OBR Arrival & Departure Suggestions
We recognize with the gas crisis, traveling may be difficult. We highly recommend taking Route 460 as an alternative route from I-95 to and from OBX.

  • Route 460 is lined with fuel stations. It’s immediately observable if fuel is available to save you time, miles, and fuel.
  • I-64 is typically heavy with traffic and cumbersome to exit for gas.

  • In addition to many smaller convenience gas stations, Route 460 offers several large fuel stations including Love’s, Pilot, and others with large access to multiple lanes of fueling.

  • Yesterday, many of them were line free and only about half the pumps were used.

  • We recommend you top off your tank at one of these stations between I-95 and Wakefield, VA.

  • Departing Guests: With a nearly full tank you can make it to these stations which are about 150 miles from Avon. *Traffic conditions permitting
  • Arriving Guests: You’re sure to make it to Avon from any one of these stations. *Traffic conditions permitting

Guests currently in homes: Please fill your tanks from available sources prior to check-out day. Minimize driving until your departure. Check-out time remains by 8 AM on your scheduled day of departure. We anticipate all arriving Guests to check-in as scheduled as we’re at 100% occupancy for this weekend.

If the gas situation has altered your travel plans and you have decided to depart early, please reach out to us at 800-627-1850 . Our team is standing by to assist. We are happy to help

Guests due to arrive this weekend: We are hopeful you will not have significant issues getting to the Island. Due to labor, and now gas shortages, check-in times may be delayed to 6 PM or later in some cases. Please bear with us as we cope with lingering effects on our business from these unprecedented times. To be notified that your home is ready, please opt into our "Your house is ready program."

We will keep you apprised as more facts become available to us. Thank you for choosing Outer Beaches. We’ll do our best to provide you with an exceptional vacation on Hatteras Island.

We can’t wait to see you…
