Pipeline Shutdown Causing Gas Shortage in Gas Stations

One of America’s largest and most important fuel pipelines is still largely shut down. The Colonial Pipeline that runs from Texas to New Jersey was attacked by cybercriminals looking for ransom last week. But it looks like the company isn’t willing to pay.

And now gas stations in multiple states have run out of gas. Long lines of cars are waiting hours to fuel up if they’re lucky. Others are greeted by a plastic bag covering the pump.
