Lots of people in Rhode Island seemed to have the same idea of filling up before the big storm, leading to several gas stations running out of fuel. 

Both Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo and Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker are warning residents to stay home and stay off the roads today.

But many residents of both states may have to head out if the high winds and heavy snowfall causes them to lose power.

That news may have been what brought people out for fuel all across both states. gassing up cars and loading up for generators, snowblowers and more.

Whatever their reason, so many people came to gas stations around Coventry, Rhode Island that NBC 10 reports they ran out of fuel.

And they might not be the only ones.

With the high winds already kicking up, people are trying to make those last minute plans to keep safe in the storm.

Temperatures for Friday and Saturday are going to be the lowest we've seen around here in decades, so if you do need to gas up to stay warm don't wait much longer to do it.
