Parts of the Southeast suffered from a lack of gas and long lines on the pump after the largest fuel line in the US was crippled by a ransomware attack.

The Colonial Pipeline, which operates the pipeline that supplies fuel to nearly half of the east coast, said Friday it fell victim to a ransomware attack and forced it to shut down.

The company announced Monday that it intends to restore service by the end of the week. However, Colonial added that the situation “remains fluid and evolving”.
