Company restarts gasoline pipeline after leak in Alabama

"Motorists may continue to see spotty outages this week, but once regular fuel delivery resumes, supplies should return to normal", said Garrett Townsend, Georgia public affairs director, AAA-The Auto Club.

Authorities said a leak in the pipeline was discovered September 9 near Helena, Alabama, when state workers noticed a strong gasoline odor and sheen on a man-made retention pond.

USA largest gasoline pipeline system, Colonial Pipeline, is set to restart its main shipping route today, easing a almost two-week supply disruption to the East Coast, after shutting down its Line 1 due to a leak in Alabama, Kallanish Energy reports.

AAA reports that in Georgia, Tuesday's average price for regular gas rose about five cents since Monday, to an average $2.36 statewide - up almost 27 cents over the past week.

Colonial has estimated that 252,000 gallons to 336,000 gallons of gasoline leaked from the line.

Garnett says 'farewell' after 21 NBA seasons
He was traded from the team in 2007 to the Boston Celtics, where he won his only National Basketball Association championship. But don't forget he also won an Olympic gold medal in 2000, averaging 10.8 points, 9.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists.

"Due to the recent state of emergency declared regarding the gas shortage resulting from the gas leak in Alabama, all non-emergency and non-critical vehicles will be temporarily limited to 10 gallons at the pump", he said.

"I didn't think it would get worse overnight, but it just did", Parks said while waiting in a line to refuel on Monday. The company says spilled gasoline is being taken to the storage facility for storage.

"I want people to first of all not panic", he said.

State workers discovered the leak when they noticed a strong gasoline odor and sheen on a man-made retention pond, along with dead vegetation nearby, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration said in the report.

Many states have also allowed for an extension of the maximum number of hours truck drivers are allowed to drive in order to deliver gas products to the state. The agency, part of the U.S. Department of Transportation, is investigating the leak in a section of the pipeline constructed in 1963, it said.

The full shutdown of Colonial's 1.3 million-barrel-a-day gasoline pipeline choked off a key supply line to the East Coast from the Gulf Coast.
