DETROIT – Gas prices are expected to rise ahead of the Memorial Day holiday.
A major pipeline on the East Coast shut down due to a cyberattack but that is not going to impact the automotive fuel supply in Michigan, according to officials.
The Colonial Pipeline, the biggest fuel pipeline in the U.S., which delivers about 45% of what is consumed on the East Coast, was hit on Friday with a cyber attack by hackers who lock up computer systems and demand a ransom to release them.
The concern in Metro Detroit is over hoarding from people unaware that our gas comes from a different pipeline.
More than 1 million Michigan residents are expected to travel Memorial Day weekend and prices could reach $3 a gallon by then and could rise as we head into summer.
