Colonial Pipeline back to normal operations after cyberattack

METRO ATLANTA — After a brutal couple of days where people lined up into the streets to get gas after Colonial Pipeline had to halt gas flow from the Gulf Coast, things are beginning to return to normal.

The pipeline company said Saturday morning that the flow of oil and gasoline has resumed functioning at a normal level with no issues.

During the day on Friday, Channel 2 Action News saw multitudes of tanker trucks bringing much needed supplies to stations in need.

Not all of the news is good however. While not at the levels seen in the middle of the past week, there were still well over 40% of Georgia’s gas stations reporting they had no gas as of Saturday morning.

Gas Buddy, who uses a crowdsourced algorithm from their phone application to track outages reports roughly 46% of the state’s gas stations still do not have gas.

However, it is an improvement over Friday morning when 51% had no gas.


In addition, AAA of Georgia offers a price tracker that will tell you how much gas costs where you live or are. According to their tracker, the current average price in the state of Georgia as of Saturday morning is $2.97 a gallon. That price is less than the national average of $3.04 a gallon.
