Kentucky's governor works to prevent long gas lines

Drivers across the southeastern U.S. are having a tough time finding a place to fill up because of gas shortages.  So Kentucky's governor is making a move he hopes will prevent that from happening here.

Gov. Steve Beshear issued an executive order allowing wholesalers to immediately begin distributing gas that usually is sold only during the fall and winter.  Lower-volatility gasoline is distributed during summer months to minimize fumes.

Some states have experienced gasoline shortages in the wake of hurricanes Gustav and Ike.   Beshear says his order will expand the state's supply of gasoline.
