Gas crunch in SE U.S. shouldn’t have much impact on Indiana


Indiana wasn’t impacted as much of the east coast dealt with a gasoline crisis. But that could change.

Prices are up in the state, but that was the case before the Colonial Pipeline cyberattack that created gas shortages throughout much of the southeastern U.S.

The ransomware attack caused the major energy pipeline to shut down, and The South Bend Tribune reports that four governors in the region were forced to declare a state of emergency as gas becomes scarce.

The pipeline doesn’t serve Indiana, so AAA predicts that the impact on The Hoosier State will be minimal, unless the gas crunch goes on for more than a week.

Colonial Pipeline expects to have much of their service back up and running by the end of the week.
