Southeast US Sees Gas Shortages After Pipeline Cyberattack

By R. Mitchell -

Drivers in the Southeast began running into long lines and empty pumps Monday night despite assurances from the Biden administration that there were no shortages.

The Biden administration attempted to assuage fears during the White House briefing Monday. “Right now, there is not a supply shortage,” Deputy National Security Advisor Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall said.

Later Monday evening, the White House walked back its “not a supply shortage” statement.

The Administration is continually assessing the impact of this ongoing incident on fuel supply for the East Coast. We are monitoring supply shortages in parts of the Southeast and are evaluating every action the Administration can take to mitigate the impact as much as possible.

Statement by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki 5/10/21

The shortages and long lines are due to a ransomware Cyberattack on Colonial Pipeline. The company supplies almost half of all fuel to the mid-Atlantic and Southeastern United States.
