Fuel scarcity in United States

 

United States of America are faced with fuel scarcity in several of its state to the point, US residents buy fuel in plastic bags and kegs.

A state of emergency was declared on Tuesday as gas stations began to run out of gasoline, 5 days after a cyber attack brought about by the key Colonial pipe.

According to Colonial, he claims the pipe was hit by a ransom attack on Friday; as hackers lock up the computer systems by encrypting data and demand a large ransom to decrypt it.

Although assurances have come from President Joe Biden's administration, that the pipeline responsible for the production and distribution of gas would kickstart in next few days, drivers are still panicked and continue to over top their fuel tanks.

State Governors declared states of emergency in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia to curtail the outbreak of fuel scarcity in several gas stations.
