Guadalajara, Mexico (CNN)The sky is dark. The gas station is closed. And still, drivers are lined up here, hoping for the chance to fill up.
It’s been almost a week since gas stations in the Mexican state of Jalisco started to run dry. Shortages have been reported in at least five other states and in the country’s capital, too.
At this station in the Guadalajara suburb of Zapopan, drivers say they’ve been waiting hours for gas. The line stretches outside the station and onto the street.
