Will Pipeline Restart Lead to Less Panic-Buying of Gasoline?
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The gas is flowing again as Colonial Pipeline begins to restart operations.
There’s hope the news will reduce panic-buying amid a spike in demand for gas.
Experts say there isn’t a gas shortage. The issue… is keeping up with demand.
As soon as tanker trucks show up at gas stations, people are buying it up in a matter of hours.
Colonial Pipeline says it will still take several days for the supply chain to return to normal.
The company says it will move as much gas through the system as safely possible and will continue to do so until markets return to normal.
