The east coast is facing the worst energy crisis in decades as gas traders rush to reroute a major pipeline that carries diesel fuel, jet fuel and gasoline to cities all along the eastern seaboard.

Colonial Pipeline Co., the second major fuel pipeline operator in the Gulf Coast, shut down its operation on Wednesday after Hurricane Harvey dumped 51 inches of rain in the region.

The shut down is a major blow to a pipeline that supplies 58.8 million gallons of fuel to the entire East Coast daily.

Major airports that will be affected by the fuel shortage (beginning on Thursday) include Atlanta’s Hartsfield Airport, Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham, NC; Washington Dulles Airport (Virginia), and LaGuardia and John F Kennedy airports in New York City.

major gas pipeline shuts down

Gas stations in every major city in the east will go dry by next week if an alternate route for millions of gallons of gasoline isn’t found soon.

“I’ve never seen a situation this bad,” one East Coast market source told the Daily Mail UK. “This is going to be the worst thing the US has seen in decades from an energy standpoint.”

There are reports that motorists are already rushing to the pumps to fill up their cars and gasoline containers before the inevitable gasoline price hikes and gas shortage begins.

The Explorer Pipeline, which has a capacity of 660,000 barrels of oil a day, has also shut down operations due to flooding.

Kinder Morgan Inc’s 700,000-bpd oil pipeline, which originates in Louisiana and ends in the Washington, D.C., remains fully operational a spokesman said in an email to the Daily Mail.

The total shut down is about 24% of the nation’s oil refining capacity.

    SAD!!!

  • JV

    Gas stations are in no danger of running dry. There will be a sharp spike in prices — 15% to 25% — and then a decline.

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    My heart just goes out to Houston

  • soujourn_erets

    It’s all about money folks. They use geo engineering (HAARP & Chemtrails) to create and intensify storms. It’s not always a “natural disaster”. These folks can care less about human life. Their judgement will be swift.

  • cherrypie

    It’s crazy because my bf talks about the exact same thing all the time. From Chemtrails to them creating storms….at first I thought he was just a conspiracy theorist which he is but now im thinking he may be on to something. Said Prince was talking about Chemtrails on Tavis Smiley show before he died/murdered

  • brownisback

    I think Prince got it from Dick Gregory

  • Phyllis

    Had my homegirl calling me at 629am this morning about this. Please continue keeping us in Houston and surrounding areas in your thoughts and prayers. I’m not even watching the news anymore because it’s just too much…

  • Soda

    So…the disaster will destroy so much that people will be forced to spend or donate money that will then mostly go to the people who created the disaster?

  • soujourn_erets

    Yea, sis. It’s real. The powers that be are literally in bed with Satan (current ruler of this world) and it’s all about killing (sacrificing) people – no method is spared.

    Prince, and others who sell out, they’re given this hidden knowledge. Him, and many others, usually wakes up and start exposing the dark workings. But, folks have been deceived on a high level that they will never consider this information:

    We are called crazy, yet what we say always comes to light/pass

  • hottlanta

    Check your gas bills now and what they gonna do is raise the rate for the upcoming winter months to offset the cost.

  • soujourn_erets

    That’s how it always goes.

    Google how much was raised for Haiti and then research how many homes were built for the victims. Start there

  • thrift.store.jungle

    remind me to fill up when i leave work, please.

  • Soda

    That part I can believe. Man-made storms, no.

  • JV

    The oil refineries themselves, in addition to our unsustainable agriculture, are creating and intensifying weather havoc on their own.

  • soujourn_erets

    Dick Gregory was definitely Boule. He knew way too much to not be involved. He was a token one.

  • soujourn_erets

    I understand. Research HAARP, Chemtrails and, especially, CERN.

  • soujourn_erets

    These folks are dealing with Fallen technology.

    Check this out:

  • soujourn_erets

    That could be a factor.

  • ?Royalty?

    My cousin works for FEMA and she told us the night of the storm to head out and fill up our gas tanks since she had been told the storm may affect gas prices everywhere. My family filled up that same night.

    Guys fill up the moment you get a chance. Make sure you have back up for your cars, and generators too.

  • ?Royalty?

    Thank you! I thought everyone knew about HAARP by now and documented instances of weird crap falling from the skys making people sick.

    And its gonna get worse…..

  • Blue

    Yeah. Every year, around super bowl time, they say there’s a shortage of chicken wings. ?

  • ?Royalty?

    This made me giggle. I’m disappointed in us both. LOL.

  • soujourn_erets

    Yep, folks are being distracted with the cares of this world. These celebs have been placed on these platforms to decieve people. That’s the deal they took when they sold out. Soul for money, power, fame (influence)

  • Branch Davidian

    I drive a Tesla. Is it OK that I don’t give a shit?

  • Blue

    Hahahahaha. Me too.

  • soujourn_erets
  • soujourn_erets

    And, Sandra, why are you promoting a homosexual getaway in Tel Aviv on your urban blog? Most of us are the descendants of the people who truly occupied that land and you pushing the false one and the homo agenda on us ?

    Confusion. It ain’t worth the money.

  • brownisback

    My sis lives in Frisco and she’s been to 4 gas stations so far and they were all out

  • cherrypie

    yeah i remember reading an article where out of the millions of dollars that was raised for Haiti these mf’s built ONE home and no one can account for the rest of the money.

  • Soda

    Do people really take this seriously, that the sky was sprayed black to fool people into believing it was an eclipse? I guess adding a man with a hoity-toity accent made this theory more believable. Is there also a powerful wind machine to churn those man-made clouds into hurricanes?

  • CookieMobster

    I don’t understand why an underground pipeline is shut down because of flooding. Just a way to drive prices back up if you ask me.

  • soujourn_erets

    I didn’t catch that part…nor have I read into it, or really believe that specific claim. I should’ve placed a disclaimer.

    I wanted you to focus on the rain cloud that they (NASA) created.

    Again, research HAARP, Chemtrails and CERN

  • stav

    Nothing but FACTS here!

  • CookieMobster

    Didn’t Wyclef do the same thing??

  • You Could Never

    This story is inaccurate and a tad bit sensational if you click the link. Yes its gonna be bad. But damn I dont need a publication in ENGLAND to tell me this.

    How I KNOW its inaccurate: “The main line carries 1.4million barrels of gasoline from the Gulf Coast to as far east and north as North Carolina every day.”

    Other things in it too that are just not factual.

    The real truth is it serves also Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.

    Which all the last I checked are further north than us here in NC. This is what happens when you are in England trying to report the news… and know nothing about North America.

    Find better sources.

  • You Could Never

    Also, this pipeline. parts of it are down A LOT for repairs. Nobody most times even KNOW it. Sometimes for days/up to weeks It was down around Thanksgiving due to a fire. And again twice this year. While I do think we are going to feel it, I also lean towards they are just tryna scare the shit out of us. #StayWoke

  • Soda

    I’ll stick with the theory that hurricanes are the spirits of dead slaves based on the southern areas they hit.

  • soujourn_erets

    Spirits return to the creator after death. But, you have every right to believe so.

    Those slaves were the Israelites of the Bible. Our ancestors forsakes the Most High and He recompensed them via Transatlantic Slave Trade.

    It’s all in the book

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Would love to see how y’all make this the Dems fault too.

  • Tink Tink

    There’s a lot of “dry” gas stations here in Dallas area….one of the biggest suppliers here (QT) won’t be supplying gas to some of there stations (better to have some with gas flowing then all with limited gas they say).

  • Tink Tink

    Yea, there have been quite a few stations out here in Dallas “drying” up.

  • You Could Never

    It is their fault. They are the ones who called for an investigation after the fire back last fall. After that, they close the Colonial Pipeline for anything. Big or small. They said they were already aware of all the issues and were cooperating. But NO.

    “Congressional Democrats want Colonial Pipeline investigation after Alabama explosion”

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Gas was like $2.39 in Atlanta this morning last time I checked. I’m sure it’ll be up a lot higher by this weekend.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I just got back from a gas station in Buckhead a few minutes ago. Premium gasoline was $3.45 a gallon. I wanted to fill up my other car but it won’t start. These are the times when a man comes in handy.

  • brownisback

    She said Walmart’s systems are down in her area also so they aren’t taking cards, just cash and checks

  • JV

    I don’t doubt it, but that’s not going to be the case all across the East Coast as the article suggests.

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    Got mine before the price hike.. My commute to work is only 7 mins. The grocery store is crost the street. Bill paid online..Im good for bout 3weeks… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/68bc52b2a4f54f3dc0d4dea29ec0c12c203c19b65d4d18beb2fbbd13d0be6a55.gif

  • JV

    It’s highly inaccurate.

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    2.59 and rising in Rockdale..

  • NicoleZee

    What??? Dang, I wonder how much Kroger gas is today??? Sorry about your other car :(.

  • Breitbart_Savior

    But don’t you play the role of a man, Sandra?

  • brownisback

    I’m off until Wednesday so I’ll be home chillin. I have a full tank and food so I considerate myself very fortunate. My sis said the situation there is even worse than what’s being shown on the news

  • brownisback

    Don’t know you but I love you! Lol

  • You Could Never

    *whispers* me too.

  • You Could Never

    Im so sorry for this. I pray your family there continues to be safe man.

  • Soda

    OMG! I was just kidding. Buy a sense of humor.

  • brownisback

    Thanks! Fortunately she’s in Frisco so she and my nieces and nephews are safe

  • soujourn_erets

    Some folks actually believe that tho. Ha. My bad.

  • eric5000

    why did this happen, because the plant was put near a spot that should have been a barrier!! But hey, there is no such thing as global warming!

  • bemetoo

    I went to 14 gas station and all were filled with at least 50-60 cars and others were labeled OUT OF GAS…finally I made it to an Exxon 2.89 reg and thats all they had
