S.C. Attorney General: Gas prices are not the result of pipeline

A.G. says the disruption on gas market due to the Colonial pipeline has expired

Columbia, SC (WOLO) — South Carolina’s Attorney General says the prices you see at the pump are not related to the cyber attack on the Colonial pipeline a few weeks ago.

According to gasbuddy.com the national average is abut $3 dollar per gallon, here in the Midlands we’re spending an average of $2.82 a gallon.
