Gas Pipeline Expected To Restart Today Outages Still Likely: Maria Boynton Reports

The company responsible for the ruptured pipeline, that has caused gas outages in Georgia and other states, anticipates that a replacement line will be ready to start today. Drivers across metro Atlanta say they have been having a hard time finding gas, and when they do, it’s expensive. The break, on September 9, in the line owned by Colonial Pipeline, caused a major reduction in gas supplies here.

According to AAA Spokesman Garrett Townsend, “Motorists may continue to see spotty outages this week, but once regular fuel delivery resumes, supplies should return to normal. AAA advises motorists to continue their normal driving and fueling routine”. Townsend adds,“We anticipate that pump prices will return to last week’s level fairly soon after fuel deliveries are back on schedule.”
