Fuel Shortage In The United States

The rumor: There's a fuel/petrol shortage in the south eastern United States.
The truth: There ISNT


People are currently HOARDING FUEL. Which is really starting to anger a lot of us. Yes the price of fuel has gone up, but that doesn't mean that there is a is a shortage. Now we have things happening like this:

The truth of the matter is there is not a national gas shortage.
The story:A cyber-attack forced the largest U.S. fuel pipeline to shut down over the weekend, threatening to crimp Southeast U.S. supplies and raise prices if the pipeline isn’t brought back online soon.
 Colonial Pipeline Co., operator of the 5,500-mile conduit for gasoline, diesel fuel and other refined products to the East Coast, has said it was bringing segments of the pipeline back online and it hoped to substantially restore operational service by the end of the week.
Given that the pipeline will take at least several more days to come back into service, prices at the pump could rise as inventories of gasoline are reduced in states expected to be particularly hard-hit, including Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee

This caused a "concern" over shortages and higher prices. Yes the prices have become a but higher but NO there is NO FUEL SHORTAGE! This is like the toilet paper thing all over again.


UGH

I saw on the news, a person filling up a disposable water bottle with gasoline. Seems a bit silly.

Can't believe the cyber-attackers got paid. They apologized because they didn't really understand the fallout of shutting the line off, but the government still payed them.

People big dum dum
And it cracked inside,
It possessed and flayed my mind.
The lord of darkness takes my soul
And when I left the light it seemed so easy
Everything is out of control

its soooooo real though which is mind blowing. A lot of the videos that were originally circulating are old and from a different situation. But there are new videos and one of them is from here in Maryland.
