Outages still affecting nearly 47 percent of gas stations in Myrtle Beach/Florence area, GasBuddy says



MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) – Even though the Colonial Pipeline has resumed full operations after a cyberattack earlier this month, 46.8% of gas stations in the Myrtle Beach/Florence region continued to experience outages on Wednesday, according to GasBuddy’s Patrick De Haan.

Across South Carolina, the Greenville/Spartanburg/Asheville/Anderson was at 39.9%, Charleston was 24.1%, Augusta/Aiken was 26.7 and Columbia was 43.3 percent, De Haan said on Twitter.

In addition, GasBuddy said Tuesday that U.S. gasoline demand was down 16.0% from the prior week.

Stations across the Southeast began experiencing outages after the pipeline was shut down after a ransomware attack on May 7.
