Jet fuel prices have surged nationwide, especially in the New York City area, due to the Colonial Pipeline cyberattack outage, which ended Wednesday afternoon.
Colonial Pipeline said it resumed operations around 5 p.m. but that the system would not be fully functional immediately.
The premium on jet fuel prices in New York Harbor was nearly $1.87 a gallon on Tuesday, close to 9 cents more than the U.S. Gulf Coast price, the largest premium since February 2020 and almost 40% more than a week ago, according to S&P Global Platts.
