Notice: amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `pre_get_posts` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the theme with slug `publisher` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

The , which is responsible for delivering nearly half of the fuel that is consumed across the East Coast, carries about 3 million barrels of fuel per day from Texas all the way to New York.

The pipeline was hit by Darkside in an attack that temporarily locked and suspended the company’s computer systems, the FBI confirmed in a statement.

Drivers across North Carolina and up the East Coast are already feeling the effects of the shut down, with many lining up for ‘hours’ in order to fuel their cars.

Some gas stations and providers have already run out of fuel supply.

Prices at other stations have already skyrocketed to nearly $10 per gallon.

Colonial Pipeline released statements on their website which has since crashed, presumably due to a high volume of traffic. 

“We are experiencing temporary service disruptions to our corporate website, and it is unrelated to the ransomware,” the company said.

Governor Cooper added that he spoke with federal officials “including Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm” and that there is currently a “full court press to get the Colonial Pipeline back up and fully operating quickly.”

He urged residents to “report price gouging” as the situation continues to unfold.
