No Gasoline Shortage and Sudden Price Increasing in Louisiana

Fig 01- Gasoline pump for cars

Colonial pipelines serve gasoline distribution in my state, Louisiana. The pipe lines also carry refined oil product from Texas to states such as:

- Mississippi
- Alabama
- Georgia
- South Carolina
- North Carolina
- Virginia
- Maryland
- Delaware
- Pennsylvania
- New Jersey
- Tennessee.

Hackers called as “DarkSise” had attacked pipeline since May 8, 2021. Then, I tried to find out whether the cyberattacks affect on my state, Louisiana.


Fig 02- Regular gas price, not really changed.


Fig 03- No long waiting line

Luckily, I think the cyberattack had no effect at all in respect on:

- price
- gas supply
- waiting line in the gas stations

Yes, gas price increased compared to last month, but not because disturbance of ransomware attack.

Just “normal” increasing due to supply and demand in the world market.

As my understanding from “mainstream media” resources, the cyberattack leads to shortage of gas, and even consumers panic in the states:

- Georgia
- South Carolina
- North Carolina
- Virginia

How about with your states? Did you notice increasing of gas price or gas shortages recently?

  3. Here it also increases, Evi, but as in my country inflation has been causing havoc for decades, it does not surprise me like you, who live in a much more reasonable and predictable country.

    Big hugest hug, friend!!

  7. Oh yeah, increased prices on the gas stations that were open here in NC, as well as ridiculously long lines out into the road. Thankfully we never go far.

  9. In Portugal the price of fuel is always rising, certainly for different reasons, but the prices are very high.

  12. Dear Evi!
    As always, a very interesting post.
    In my country, fuel and gas prices are constantly rising.
    Have a great new week. Hugs and greetings:)

  13. We have seen both a gas shortage and price increase in South Carolina. Luckily it seems to only be around half the gas stations without gas so it is still easy enough to fill up in our area.

  14. There were all kinds of empty gas stations in Louisiana. Here in Houma quite a few were out, as was Morgan City and Thibodaux. Every single one of my Alabama, Florida, and Tennessee vacation groups had pictures of numerous closed pumps also.

  15. Now that they've switched to more expensive summer gas mix, I'm not sure how much of our change is pipeline and how much is that. Prices are certainly higher than they were but they haven't spiked and there hasn't been any run on the gas. No closed pumps I've spotted here in Michigan so far. Gas is about $2.85/gallon this weekend.

  16. It has increased to $3.00 per gallon in Upstate NY, I hope it goes back to the regular price soon.
    Thanks for sharing!

  17. It's a sad situation as things re-open. Our states are reaching for the gas tax as well.

  18. I heard about this on the news. Living in NYC where we rely more on mass transit, I haven't really seen the prices of gas go up.

  20. There's a general rise in prices and that includes gasoline, I suppose.

    ReplyDelete
  21. It's always something, isn't it? Gas has been pricier here in New Jersey, but thankfully we haven't experienced any shortages yet. Stay safe and healthy -- and hopefully on the road -- in Louisiana!

  28. Thankfully with less places to go our gas lasts much longer.. last time I went for a refill there was no price increase.

  29. Por aquí, gracias a Dios, al no ser productores no suelen ocurrir estos ciberataques, que nunca he entendido que fin buscan, porque lo único que pueden conseguir es paralizar un país y crear molestias y encarecer el producto al consumidor, que siempre es el más perjudicado.
    Me alegro que a tu estado no le haya afectado.
    Abrazos, amiga Evi.

  30. Undoubtedly, oil prices are now rising in the market due to high demand after many countries started distributing vaccines to their population thus reviving the country's growth rate, especially in the aviation sector...
