The adventures of Fay and Bob as they move beyond the 9 to 5 life

An education in pipelines and gas

Leave a comment

The newspaper tells us that the gas crunch is getting better here in SC.  I have only complained about the cost of gas in the past, not the shortage of it.  Here is what happened.  NC, SC, Georgia and I’m sure other places rely on pipelines that come from the Gulf Coast.  When Hurricane Ike hit those pipelines they went down.  Atlanta was fed with two pipelines and Greenville with one.  What I thought was really interesting is that once they are shut down and then start up the gas travels at 5 mph and at that rate would take at least 10 days until it got close to us and then it has to be moved by truck to all the gas stations.

Anyone reading this know anything about the pipelines in MN?  We don’t drive much and had full tanks so we were not affected but it really made me think about something I have taken for granted.
