Governor Hogan Asks Drivers to Proceed as Normal in Regards to the Colonial Pipeline
Per Governor Larry Hogan:
At yesterday’s cabinet meeting, the state’s energy and emergency planning teams provided an update regarding the temporary disruption to the Colonial Pipeline.
Since Saturday morning, when the state activated a statewide response, Maryland has been closely coordinating with the federal administration and local jurisdictions.
While the operators of the pipeline currently anticipate that the disruption is likely to be short-term, Maryland is prepared for all contingencies.
“We will keep Marylanders informed of any significant impacts on our fuel supply. For now, drivers should proceed as normal.”
We have been receiving reports of long lines at gas stations across the county. Below you’ll see a photo of the Shell station on Shady Grove Road in front of Bowlmor, sent in by Instagram user @amberr.paigee, where she tells us drivers are arguing and yelling at each other while in line.
