Gas prices have jumped more than 8 cents in the last week as the Colonial Pipeline shutdown disrupted a crucial artery in the U.S. petroleum industry.
The company said it began to restart operations around 5 p.m. ET Wednesday evening, and said Thursday morning that “product delivery has commenced in a majority” of markets. Colonial Pipeline is aiming to restore service to all of its markets by mid-day.
