Gas stations in Washington state are resetting their price boards to accommodate double digits in preparation for fuel prices potentially reaching $10 a gallon, according to a report.

The move comes as several gas stations in the Evergreen State ran out of fuel, the Post Millennial reported.

At the 76 gas station in Auburn, about 30 miles south of Seattle, gas pumps were reprogrammed so the display could indicate a price of at least $10 a gallon.

Washingtonians are also having to contend with gas stations that are running out of fuel.

Motorists who drive up to gas pumps in Kennewick, Pasco and West Richland are met with notes indicating that the station does not have any fuel to sell — except diesel.

On Facebook, local residents are reporting more than 10 gas stations that are out of fuel.

The average price of a gallon of gas in Washington state is $5.18 — well above the national average of $4.59 as of Thursday, according to AAA.

The most expensive gas in the nation could be found in California, where motorists in and around San Francisco pay more than $6 a gallon.

Limited supply exacerbated by the Russian invasion of Ukraine, coupled with what is expected to be sky-high demand as Americans take to the roads this summer for travel, will likely push gas prices even higher, analysts warn.
