State of emergencies have been declared in both Georgia and Alabama due to a main fuel supply line leaked an estimated 250,000 gallons on September 9th. Due to the leak the line has been closed and is under repair. It is estimated the fuel supply will begin flowing again sometime next week.
AAA is reporting that parts of North Carolina, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Mississippi will experience some level of shortage and price increase. The overall impact SHOULD be minor in significance as alternate supply sources are being moved into the affected areas.
If you live in the southeast it doesn’t look like there is a need to panic however there is no better time to top off your tank than now. Situations like this remind us having extra fuel put back is a good idea.
