Lines for gas stretched for blocks and several states declared a state of emergency after a cyberattack took out one of the largest pipelines in the country May 7. The Biden administration announced soon after the attack it was “monitoring” the situation and investigating whether a foreign actor was to blame.

The pipeline went back online Wednesday evening, but only after almost a week of critical fuel shortages in the Southeast U.S. While the government stepped in to help get the Colonial Pipeline running again and President Joe Biden was not responsible for this particular shortage, his policies could make fuel shortages like this one more likely in the future.
