Two main gasoline pipelines back online

This should be good news for the petro-fuel users. Let’s hope it is reflected in the price at the pump soon:

Two petroleum pipelines that supply gasoline and other fuels to the Triangle area have returned to service and are increasing their service to the region.
Plantation Pipe Line Co. is up to 95 percent capacity after electric crews repaired its distribution system, which failed when Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast early this week.
Meanwhile, the Colonial Pipeline is at 66 percent capacity and is expected to increase to an 85 percent level by late this weekend.
Colonial operates 5,500 miles of pipeline and normally pumps more than 100 million gallons of fuel products daily from refineries and storage facilities in Texas and Louisiana to Georgia, the Carolinas and New York.
Plantation operates 3,100 miles of pipelines that transport gasoline, diesel and jet fuel to major metropolitan areas in the Southeast.
