Gas station Supplies
— Police blocked off a Sheetz gas station in Raleigh on Wednesday morning after employees reported finding suspicious packages.
Police said the packages were found at several of the gas pumps at the store on Capital Boulevard and Thornton Road. An employee threw at least one package in a trash bin, then called 911 out of concern.
The items turned out to be unused medical supplies.
"They just appear to be some medical supplies that were left there for reasons that we don't really understand at this point, " Raleigh police spokesman Jim Sughrue said.
Still, authorities reacted out of caution until they determined there was no threat, he said. Traffic was blocked, and customers were kept inside the store until police gave the all clear about 1:20 p.m.
"What you saw were a lot of precautions being taken, " Sughrue said. "The safety of everyone was considered."
Customer Kevin Powell said he was inside with 30 to 35 other customers, and employees offered them free food while they waited.
"We've been here since about 11 a.m., " he said. "I just pulled in to get gas, left the pump running and went inside. I wasn't able to go back outside."
Powell said he and the other customers weren't panicked as they waited for police to tell them they could go.

are the majority of gas stations supplied by the same source/refinery company & who are they?
all of the gas stations in a tregion typically get the raw gasoline from the same refinery - however, the different fuel companies each have their own blend of additives they add to the raw gasoline. the refineries are owned separately from the gasoline retailers, and they get their fuel from production companies that are also different from the retailers. however, the same parent company may own a production company, refinery, and retail distributors in an area - which means the CEO gets a paycheck several times on the same gallon of gasoline.
