Gasoline prices spike after Alabama pipeline leak

Gasoline prices spike after Alabama leakRetail gasoline prices surged due to continuing problems with Colonial Pipeline's gasoline line that carries fuel to the East Coast, as the company started to construct a bypass line around the leak.

Colonial said on Saturday evening that it would construct a bypass that circumvents the leak, which occurred more than a week ago in Shelby County, Alabama. It is unclear when construction will be completed but the company has previously said it anticipates reopening the line, which can carry up to 1.2 million barrels of gasoline a day, later this week.

The volume of the spill is estimated to be 6,000 to 8,000 barrels.
