Curious about gas/diesel after East Coast pipeline crash

I'm curious if anyone who is in the East/Southeast is experiencing either higher fuel prices or outright unavailability of fuel following the pipeline shutdown.

Being about to leave MN for the West again, and understanding that fuel supplies follow a national trend, what I'm hearing makes me pause.

The hackers have taken down the block and apologized for the societal impact. That was on the news last night.

True, but now knowing they are hackable, the pipeline company hasn't restarted, and says it might be a day or two. And, from 5/10 evening:

It's probably nothing. But since it's easy to ask and might save me some hassle . . .

I live in southern Virginia, gas is 2.67 and diesel is at 3.29, it has not increased in the last 3 weeks or so, there is no shortage here at all, my Son lives in California gas there is 4.19 per gal. But on East Coast I haven’t seen any big change.

In DFW area of Texas, gas prices jumped 30 to 40 cents it seems like. I did see a Murphy Express not located at a Walmart with gas at $2.61 per gallon this morning and across the street, the 7-11 wanted $2.89 per gallon.

Currently on Maryland's Eastern Shore, as of last night prices hadn't moved much according to Gas Buddy. Around $2.89/gallon for gas, $3.21 diesel.

In SC, it's like toilet paper all over again! Thanks to facebook and other social media, there has been a big run on gas stations in the last 24 hours. Gas prices up 20 cents per gallon to $2.69, and many stations out completely or out of everything except premium. I rode by one station on the way home last night, and cars were 3-4 deep at every pump. I'll be good for the rest of the week, and I expect things will be back close to normal (but probably more expensive) by then.

Awesome. I will be leaving for MN and then points west in about 10-12 days from FL.

Prices haven't changed much, but from co-workers out that way stations are starting to close in the DC area as they run out of fuel. The hackers' statement apologizing for the societal impact was pretty amusing. (As if mere thievery doesn't have a societal impact?)
