Panic-buying appears to be causing some of the fuel shortages at stations in the Southeast following last week's cyberattack on the company that operates the pipeline that delivers fuel from Texas to the Southeast and part of the East Coast. At the same time, the operator of the Colonial Pipeline has managed to start flowing fuel through parts of its 5,500-mile-long system.
The Washington Post reports Colonial has brought parts of its fuel system back online after last week’s cyberattack. It said late Tuesday it had delivered about 967,000 barrels to various markets, including Atlanta, Charlotte and Baltimore.
Several major travel centers report some supply interruptions and a major fuel tracking app says as many as 65% of gas stations in North Carolina are haveing problems providing customers with fuel.
TravelCenters of America
TravelCenters of America has a dedicated team working closely with our suppliers and other partners, and we are bringing in product from other markets to maintain availability and to help minimize any potential disruptions. We are currently experiencing intermittent supply outages at sites and may be limiting the amount of gallons per purchase depending on location.
Due to the Colonial Pipeline shutdown, select Love’s locations are experiencing intermittent diesel and gasoline outages. Love’s and its teams are working diligently to minimize outages to only a few hours. If extended diesel outages occur, Love’s will note which locations are affected on this page.
The majority of our travel centers are stocked with fuel at this time. Due to the ongoing Colonial Pipeline situation and increased demand across the Southeast, the below locations are experiencing outages.
