East Coast faces gas shortages, price hikes after pipeline leak (CNN.com)

That pipeline passes about 20-30 miles from here.

This morning I stopped at my usual gas station, one of the cheapest around here. There were more people there than usual, and a couple of the pumps had gone empty. While I was filling up at $1.75 / gallon, the manager came out and changed the big sign in front of the station to read $1.85. I did get the $1.75, having already swiped my credit card. :biggrin:

An increase of 5 to 10 cents per gallon, the odd station here and there with dry tanks, for a breakage that's likely to be fixed in a couple weeks if not days, and ...

The governors of Alabama and Georgia have already declared states of emergency.
Well, any excuse to turn on those Federal FEMA dollars.
