Gas Supply Restored

Gas shortages and long lines at the pump returned to Coushatta on Monday afternoon.  People were filling up after news spread that a major pipeline serving much of the east coast had been hacked and shut down.

The Journal checked Monday and found the Lott Oil Chevron convenience store was out of fuel.  Employees said another supply truck would come Tuesday morning.

The diesel pumps at Conoco were bagged.  There was fuel but a line at Country Market, Coushatta Truck Stop, and Coushatta Express.

By Tuesday morning things were getting back to normal.  Lines of cars were gone.  Most stations had fuel however Lott Oil Chevron only had regular grade.  One station had posted higher prices on fuel.
