CINCINNATI — Some Kroger gas stations in the Cincinnati and Dayton area faced fuel shortages this Thanksgiving week.

A Kroger spokesperson said Wednesday the company's supplier was undergoing maintenance, contributing to fuel shortages at select Kroger locations. Drivers reported shortages at Kroger gas stations in Delhi, Harrison, Hebron, one on Ferguson Road in Cincinnati and another at the intersection of Springdale Road and Colerain Avenue.

"We are currently monitoring the issue and have deliveries on the way from a secondary supplier," the spokesperson said in a statement.

As of Thursday afternoon, only one of the locations — the Kroger on Ferguson Road — still had a shortage.
