Colonial Pipeline Gas Shortages Widen: State-by-State Breakdown
Fuel shortages have deepened on the East Coast as consumers continue to panic over buying amid fallout from a cyberattack on the Colonial pipeline last week by Russian ransomware group Darkside.
The 5,500-mile pipeline system transports more than 100 million gallons of gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and fuel oil per day, or about 45% of the fuel consumed on the east coast between the Gulf Coast and the Greater Montreal area. New York.
The Colonial Pipeline Co. said Monday it aims to substantially restore its system by the end of the week.
Gasbuddy’s senior oil analyst Patrick De Haan noted that Monday’s gasoline demand had exploded across the country.
The East Coast reported a 32.5% increase in demand on Monday from the previous week, followed by the Midwest at 16.2%, the Gulf Coast at 13.1%, the Rocky Mountain region at 6 , 6% and the west coast at 8.4%.
Gasbuddy – which operates apps and websites based on real-time fuel price research at more than 140,000 gas stations – predicts that the national average gasoline prices could reach $ 3 per gallon over the course of the next week. This would yield the highest price point seen since 2014. However, the technology research company attributes the increase to the economic recovery associated with the COVID-19 pandemic rather than the impact of the disruption.

White House says Israeli actions go ‘against’ solution to crisis
White House press secretary Jen Psaki said plans to expel dozens of Palestinians from a neighborhood in East Jerusalem worked “against” US-Israeli interests to find a solution to the conflict and condemned “The extremism that inflicted violence on both communities”.
Psaki reiterated the administration’s support for a two-state solution.
“Biden’s team is communicating a clear and consistent message in favor of de-escalation,” Psaki told reporters. “This is our main goal. The president’s support for Israel’s security, its legitimate right to defend itself and its people is fundamental and will never falter. “
She condemned rocket attacks against Israel by Hamas and other terrorist groups, but stressed the rights of Palestinians as well as Israelis.
“We believe that Palestinians and Israelis deserve equal measures of freedom, security, dignity and prosperity,” she continued. “And in recent weeks, US officials have spoken candidly with Israeli officials about how the evictions of Palestinian families who have lived for years, sometimes decades in their homes and the demolitions of those homes go against our common interests to achieve a solution in the days to come, as Muslims come together with family and friends to celebrate Eid and Dawn together to mark the beginning of Shabbat, affirm that all people of faith deserve to enjoy these important celebrations without fear of violence. “
Tensions have mounted in recent weeks between Israeli police and Palestinian protesters over the eviction plans. But another flashpoint in the Old City was the grounds of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest site in Islam and the holiest site in Judaism, which calls it the Temple Mount. . Hamas, the militant group in power in the Gaza Strip, had given Israel a deadline to withdraw its security forces from the Al-Aqsa compound and, when that date expired, fired a roadblock of 600. rockets on Israel, triggering air raid sirens.
Israel responded with airstrikes on Gaza, killing 28 people, including 10 children, according to the Wall Street Journal. The IDF said three Israelis were killed by Hamas rocket fire. The military said it was investigating reports that children had been killed and that some casualties could have been the result of rockets sent from Gaza that exploded before reaching Israel.

Matt Taibbi: The media “once challenged the spy state”, they are now its “agents”
Journalist Matt Taibbi lambasted members of the media for their transformation from being challengers into what he called the “spy state” to become “agents.”
Taibbi wrote a scathing article on his Substack arguing that “news companies are pioneering a new brand of vigilante reporting” by “partnering with the spy agencies they once oversaw.”
He began by recalling WikiLeaks’ 2010 publication of US government secrets about the war in Afghanistan, which he noted that media outlets like the New York Times, The Guardian and Der Spiegel “helped” expose the documents to. who were “devastating to the US and military intelligence community,” adding that such revelations subsequently inspired former NSA subcontractor Edward Snowden to come forward in 2014 to expose the agency’s surveillance agenda , which gave Pulitzer Prizes to journalists Glenn Greenwald, Jeremy Scahill and Laura Poitras.
“Fast forward seven years. Julian Assange is behind bars and could die there. Snowden is in exile in Russia. Brennan, Clapper and Hayden have been rehabilitated and are all paid contributors to MSNBC or CNN, being part of a wave of intelligence. officers who have flooded airwaves and opinion pages in recent years, including FBI’s Asha Rangappa, Clint Watts, Josh Campbell, former counterintelligence chief Frank Figliuzzi and former deputy director Andrew McCabe, John Sipher CIA, Phil Mudd, Ned Price, and many others, ”Taibbi wrote.
