Panic seems to be spreading as getting hard to find gas.

    Not good it looks like we are back to long lines and pumps closed...
    "A gas shortage is worsening following a cyberattack on the largest fuel pipeline on the east coast. Gas stations across the southeast are seeing long lines and panic buying. https://abcn.ws/2R70Mjw

    "Colonial Pipeline has initiated a restart of its pipeline operations after a ransomware attack sparked gas panic buying across the southeast.

    Gas stations in the southeastern US faced significant outages. According to GasBuddy, 70% of all gas stations in North Carolina, 47% in Georgia and 53% in Virginia were without gasoline."..... Gas shortages at some US stations: Live updates

    We just went out to get gas and all the stations had plastic bags on the pumps and people sitting waiting. We finally found a line at one of the larger gas stations and were able to get the tank filled up, but what a shock.

    I am sorry for the trouble in your area. I guess the problem could expand nationwide.

    In this part of Alabama, we have seen increased prices but no shortages. We are told that gas in this area comes via barge and not pipeline.
    I have been wondering if it would be considered an act of war, if the source of the hack proved to be a foreign country.

    I can certainly see this as yet another crisis and means to manufacture fear and direct the masses mindlessly toward whatever end they desire.

    Spot on, Whitless Whitmer decided that she must now close the Enbridge Pipeline in Michigan because of risks to the Great Lakes. She has done everything possible to kill Michigan, literally, starting with outlawing HCQ, taking out the nursing home patients, ongoing killing of business, now this. The left wants us completely broken in order to implement their socialist global utopia. Communism has killed far more people outright & through starvation than any virus ever could. We ARE under attack from within.
