Colonial Pipeline Resumes Operations Amid Fuel Shortages and Price Hikes

HeadlineMay 13, 2021

Colonial Pipeline says it has begun resuming operations after suffering a cyberattack last Friday. Colonial, which is owned by Royal Dutch Shell, Koch Industries and others, transports nearly half of the East Coast’s fuel supply from Texas to New Jersey. Two-thirds of North Carolina’s gas stations are empty. Colonial said it would take a few days for supplies to return to normal as some drivers have taken to hoarding gas amid fuel shortages and price hikes.
