Yes we have. There is only Premium available and the prices are $3.77 a gallon. We have to wait in line for about 2 hours just to get gas.

Have not been affected, but my son's family in North Carolina has.  This is another reason the infrastructure (security for internet is considered infrastructure) should be passed.  This type of hacking has been going on for a while and will only get worse if we don't put our best guys on this to prevent in the future.

Gas is now $3.95. Thank You Biden!

When President Trump was in office gas under $3.00!

I live in North Carolina and right now I'm okay on gas.  I will need some soon, but probably not going anywhere until Saturday.  Hope things will be better by then.  People are acting so crazy.  If you don't work, you shouldn't run out and fill up your tank.  Leave the gas for people who have to have it to go to work.

It is amazing to me how quickly people panic. It is the panic that has cause the gas shortage not the pipeline shutdown. The pipeline has already been re-started if people relax the problem will probably be resolved in less then a week.good luck to all of you in the southern states. :rainbow: :rose: :peace: :wave:

In Nov 2020 in NY gas already started to go up.

Speaking of 2020,who was president then when 1000s died of virus and much business folded?

Who was president on 1/6/2021 when some died and  Washington was stampeded?

MAGA?LOL!

MAGA shoulda stood for,Much Assinine Gonna Allow!

Well we all miss Trump, who wanted us to become energy indenpendent. Then we get this idiot in the white house who shut down the pipeline. It is also amazing how an election couldnt possibly be hacked, but a pipe line is. And of course there are all the idiots in NC that decided to drain all the gas stations while half of them are probably sitting at home on their butts living off the government when their are jobs everywhere.  While the people that actually need gas to go to work like my husband has to pay $3.50 for premium gas.

Brings back memories of the 70's gas lines.

My Jeep has been sitting in the driveway for over a year, so no impact here.

Blame pipeline shutdown on Joe Biden. He did not want the pipeline. So pipeline workers are of of jobs...Thanks to Biden!

It's a shame they paid the hijackers  ransom to get it opened back up. It affected us some, about 10cents higher than a week earlier.

Not only did the idiots in NC drain the gas in their towns but then decided to drive to neighboring state with truck loads of gas jugs and drain their stations as well.  Maybe they should make you show proof of employment before you can get gas. Or limit the amount you can get like the did with the TP.  I have seen on the news where 2 vehicles exploded or caught fire from the hoards of gas being transported in the back of the vehicle.

Why did your husband buy the premium? Why not buy regular, which is way cheaper, and from what I have seen online, all that most stations have available?
