Tuscaloosa Gas Prices Going UP
The average price per gallon of regular gas in Tuscaloosa was $1.93 on Monday, up about 8 cents a gallon, according to AAA Alabama. That said, I see lots of $1.99 prices today. 30 days ago the average gas price was $1.88 and that ole leak was found 11 days ago on Sept. 9th, 2016.
The shortage is blamed on a pipeline rupture and leak of at least 252,000 gallons of gas in Helena, Alabama. Colonial Pipeline says today the company has two main lines and the second of the two lines shipping more to limit the impact of the interruption on the other line.
Colonial Pipeline says more gas is being delivered to locations in Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, and North Carolina.
