Fairfax, VA–(HISPANIC PR WIRE – BUSINESS WIRE)–October 21, 2005–ExxonMobil today announced that it is committing additional resources to assist with the growing demand for gasoline in Florida as a result of approaching Hurricane Wilma. In addition to its fleet of 28 tanker trucks that supply Central and South Florida markets, eight tanker trucks are being placed into service. Four of the eight tanker trucks are from out of state. Furthermore, additional ExxonMobil drivers have been flown in from Chicago, California and Texas to assist in gasoline deliveries.

“We understand the importance of Florida residents having access to gasoline during this difficult time,” said Mark Shores, U.S. retail sales director, ExxonMobil Fuels Marketing. “We ask our customers to understand that at times, due to very high demand, some stations may be out of fuel for short periods, but we are working very hard to keep stations supplied with gasoline.”
