Pipeline Problems

The deadly pipeline explosion in Alabama may lead to gas shortages in the South.

Flames continue to burn after a deadly pipeline explosion in Shelby County, Alabama. The blast, believed have been caused by a collision from a construction vehicle, killed one worker and injured five others. Due to the accident, the pipeline (which delivers close to 40% of gasoline to the South) has been shut down, and now may threaten gas deliveries across the South. The line is expected to be shut down for the rest of the week.
