Gas prices climbing after pipeline leak


Gas prices have increased in the last 48 hours as a result of the Colonial Pipeline leak in Alabama. Prices rose overnight in Alabama, Tennessee, Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina, and long gas lines materialized in Tennessee.

The 36-inch wide Colonial Pipeline, built in 1963, supplies the East Coast with 40 percent of its gas supply. The pipeline was shutdown after a leak was reported.

Gas prices had been on the downtrend, with drivers saving an average of about 10 cents per gallon compared with a year ago, but national prices for regular unleaded rose two cents this week, according to AAA.

Pennsylvania prices rose a penny, and Delaware prices are up six cents.
