Last report was the pipeline should be repaired and pumping early next week. Alabama and Georgia have declared a state of emergency which makes gouging a serious crime. It has gone up some but not to the point of gouging. Georgia has also suspended restrictions on tanker truck drivers so they can haul longer hours. While we have seen some stations that are running out of fuel it's not that bad in our area. This should be short lived and things should return to normal fairly quickly. What will cause problems is if people panic. Then it will hit the fan.

Around metro Atlanta there are several stations out of gas. Those who have gas have jacked the prices up anywhere from $.30 to $.50 a gallon...or more. Do not assume you can find gas in the metro Atlanta area, especially near the Interstates, as it has gotten plain stupid fast...

Not sure why, diesel jumped 22 cents today at my station along with gas. Several stations on Nashviile have run out of gas. Left on trip for Mobile this am, there seems to be plenty of gas and diesel south of BHam.

Fox News ticker said that there needs to be some repairs to the pipeline before they will allow the Colonial Pipeline to carry gasoline again.

If they switched the backup (smaller) pipeline from diesel to gasoline, that does not bode well for diesel.

In Winston Salem NC, coming home from a night out tonight 2 gas stations out of gas. Pumps closed. One was a Sheetz. A third one had only Premium but there was a tanker truck waiting to fill up their tanks, I assume it was regular. People waiting to fill up. We topped off with premium and left. -
