Monday morning commuters search for gas as stations run dry in Piedmont Triad

Monday morning commuters are searching for gas after the Colonial Pipeline Co. discovered a leak in its major gas pipeline last Friday. The pipeline spans from Houston to New York and supplies gasoline to stations across the southeast.

"It's very frustrating when you're on your way to work and you don't want to be late, but there's no gas," one customer said Monday morning.

Another commuter doesn't know what to expect if the incident continues but is concerned about the outcome.

Most gas stations raised prices about 10 cents per gallon from Friday to Saturday, but the issue is becoming less about price and more about availability.
