NC gas shortage update: More than half of NC gas stations without fuel as Colonial Pipeline returns to ‘normal’ operations – ABC11 Raleigh-Durham

RALEIGH (WTVD) — The state has seen a minor change in the number of gas stations regaining fuel in the last day, according to GasBuddy which is now reporting 50.1 percent of North Carolina stations are without gas.

North Carolina has hovered somewhere in the upper 50s since Sunday — an improvement from the past couple of days.

Both Durham and Chapel Hill-Carrboro Schools made a return to the classrooms Monday after having to cancel in-person learning due to the shortage Friday.

On Monday, Colonial Pipeline reiterated that the supply chain will take some time to catch up since the pipeline system restart last Wednesday. The company said operations are back to normal.

Experts say the Colonial Pipeline hack didn’t cause the shortage. Instead, it was the panic-buying that happened in response.

State officials continue to discourage panic-buying. They say people rushing out to fill up all their vehicles and topping off their tanks despite not really needing it was a major reason for all the gas station outages in the first place.

GasBuddy says data shows “the epicenter of restoration efforts appears to be North Carolina at the present time.”
