“More than a quarter million gallons of gasoline have spilled in Shelby County, Alabama, after a major fuel pipeline ruptured this week. While the spill has received attention from local media outlets, national cable news networks have largely ignored the story. According to local media, the fuel line, which carries refined gasoline from Houston to the East Coast, has leaked roughly 6,000 barrels of gasoline since Monday. The leak is expected to drive up fuel prices across the Southeast, and the governors of both Alabama and Georgia have declared official state emergencies, preparing residents for fuel shortages.” 

This is horrible!!!!!
