Thousands of Gas Stations in the Southeast Report Fuel Outages – Welcome to Biden’s America


3,525 views

As the gas shortage crisis intensifies in the Southeast, upwards of 2,000 gas stations are reporting that they’re out of fuel.

The ransomware attack occurred not even one week ago, but supply lines have already impacted the lives of millions of Americans.

Colonial Pipeline provides the gasoline for nearly half of the East Coast and sudden shortages are leading to skyrocketing prices.

Unsurprisingly, the shortages are leading to panic buying and hoarding similar to what we saw in 2020.

With sudden spike in demand, you can expect price gouging and the highest gas prices we’ve seen in years.

Due to irrational panic buying that only makes the situation worse, some people are making foolish and dangerous decisions.

One of the common things we’ve seen is people pumping fuel into plastic bags.

Until Colonial Pipeline is running at normal operations again, you can expect the problem to only get worse.

And Biden continues to allow our nation’s infrastructure to be exploited.

Zero Hedge reported:

The ransomware attack has entered the fifth day, severing almost half of the gasoline and diesel supply for the East Coast. Seventeen states and Washington, DC, declared emergency declarations to address fuel shortages.

The emergency declaration covers Alabama, Arkansas, D.C., Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.

The company will provide more guidance on when the pipeline will restart by the end of the day.

Tracking firm GasBuddy reports gas shortages across the Southeast US continue to worsen by the hour.

Here is the current percent of gas stations with fuel outages per state:

  • GA – 42%
  • AL – 6%
  • TN – 14%
  • SC – 42%
  • NC – 65%
  • FL – 10%
  • VA – 42%
  • MD – 9%
  • MS – 5%
  • WV – 4%
  • KY – 2%
  • DC – 8%

Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg was quoted by Reuters as saying his department is working to “move fuel to places that need it.” He said the federal government is “doing everything it can do to reduce the impact of Colonial disruption of Americans at the pump.”

Colonial Pipeline is set to address federal officials with timetables of when it will restart gasoline and diesel flows by late Wednesday.

Tracking firm GasBuddy reports gas shortages across the Southeast US are worsening by the hour.

Here is the current percent of gas stations with fuel outages per state:

  • GA 17.5% 
  • AL 2.1%
  • TN 3.6% 
  • SC 16.2% 
  • NC 28.2% 
  • FL 4.6%
  • VA 17.1% 
  • MD 4.1% 
  • NEWLY ADDED MS 1.7% 
  • NEWLY ADDED WV 2.8%

The shortage has also pushed up the average US price of gasoline above the $3 mark for the first time in 6.5 years.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (USCPSC) is out with a new warning Wednesday, advising people who panic hoard gasoline “not to fill plastic bags” with fuel and to “only use approved” containers.

The warning comes after several stupid people were caught on camera filling plastic bags with gasoline.

USCPSC went on to say that it’s common sense to use an approved gasoline container, “but when people get desperate, they stop thinking clearly.”
