Pipeline leak could impact delivery, price of gas in Missouri

The news comes more than a week after Colonial officials announced a leak was found in the fuel supply line in Helena, Alabama.

The pipeline was reopened Wednesday evening, company officials said in a statement.

An Alabama mining inspector discovered the leak September 9, forcing its shutdown and causing a scramble for fuel across the Southeast.

States of emergency have been declared in Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia with prices jumping as much 16 cents in Georgia and and 10 cents in Tennessee in the last week, according to Auto Club. "The company says the line should restart tomorrow, but it will take several days for fuel delivery to return to normal in North Carolina". It wasn't initially possible to pinpoint the leak, partly because highly flammable benzene and gasoline vapors prevented firefighters and inspectors from approaching the site for days. The line is responsible for bringing gasoline, diesel and jet fuel from Texas and Louisiana refineries to a number of Gulf Coast and southeastern states.

He said while RBOB gasoline futures were plunging Tuesday, wholesalers were still seeing prices of 40 cents to 50 cents above futures prices.

The shutdown of a major Alabama pipeline this month should not dramatically affect fuel prices in Upstate New York, an industry expert said this morning.

The closure of an Alabama gas pipeline following a leak may cause prices to rise at the pump across the East Coast.
