Diesel Supply Outages Easing at Major Truck Stop Chains
Little Rock, AR – Diesel and gasoline supply outages are easing at major truck stop chains.
After dozens of locations across multiple states reported significant diesel and gasoline service disruptions last week in the wake of the Colonial Pipeline shutdown, Love’s Travel Stop and Pilot-Flying J are each reporting very few outages.
As of Monday morning, Love’s is reporting only two locations without diesel (both in Virginia) and 11 stores without gasoline across four states.
The Oklahoma City, OK-based company is having the most difficulty in Georgia where eight stores are currently offering no gasoline service.

Help is seemingly on the way though as the Colonial Pipeline initiated a restart of its 5,500-mile system on Thursday, May 13.
At that time, the company said it expected the product delivery supply chain to return to normal within “several days.”
