As of Monday, September 19th, 2016, up to six states are facing possible gas shortages, with more potentially on the way: Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, and Virginia. These states have each declared a state of emergency… until further notice.
Due to the Colonial Pipeline leak near Birmingham, Alabama as of Friday, September 9th, 2016, reports of up to 250,000 gallons of gas have been discovered. The pipeline, running from New York to Texas, provides fuel for much of the southern and eastern coasts of America each day — and could affect up to 50 MILLION Americans.
Fuel shortages, long lines, and major headache have already resulted from this pipeline leak. While the cause is said to be “unknown,” meanwhile, major cities such as Knoxville, TN, Atlanta, GA, Charlotte, NC, among many others are already experiencing gas stations with little to no gas at all.
While the pipeline is expected to be fixed by next week, there are still several concerns regarding the surging fuel prices in America.
But What’s The REAL Cause Of This?!?!
