The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission warned the public to NOT fill plastic bags up with gas as fuel shortages worsen for the 6th consecutive day. Many gasoline stations have run out of gas down south due to the cyberattack that halted 2.5 million barrels per day of shipments of gasoline, diesel and jet fuel last Friday. “Our top priority right now is getting the fuel to the communities that need it,” U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg told reporters. The average national gasoline price rose to above $3.00 a gallon, the highest since October 2014, the American Automobile Association said.
