Shout out to the gang at Gasbuddy! One of the most useful tools to track the progress of the Colonial Pipeline recovery has been from the online retail gasoline information provider. Gasbuddy users have helped log where stations are out of fuel. Their work provides an excellent overview of how the region is recovering and where problems linger. We have highlighted key markets below with images from Gasbuddy as of 8:45 AM EDT. The links provided will bring you to the city in question.
The markets on the pipeline east of Birmingham have been the slowest to recover. Markets sourced from Colonial branch lines such as Tallahassee who receives fuel from Bainbridge, GA are also in a slowly recovering region.
Now, if Gasbuddy could create a similar tool to locate idle fuel truck drivers our industry would be most thankful.
