To facilitate the arrival of sea fuel on the east coast of the country, Joe Biden, president of the United States, approved a temporary exemption from the supply problems of the week-old cyber attack on the country’s largest network of pipelines. This was reported by the White House in a statement explaining that Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas last night gave the green light for a “temporary and specific” license for a second foreign company to extract fuel from the sea. The authorities have not identified either of the two licensed companies. This measure makes it possible to make exceptions to the so-called Jones Act, which requires that products transported between US ports must be carried on US ships with land crew. The permit means that foreign companies can transport petrol and diesel to those areas affected by fuel shortages after a cyber attack. Colonial, the company that operates the pipeline network, announced on Wednesday that it is resuming operations, but delivery issues remain. We recommend.
That network, about 5,500 miles long (about 8,000,851 kilometers), carries 45 percent of the eastern US. provides fuel. According to Friday’s data from the Gasbuddy.com app, which tracks fuel demand, prices and availability, gas stations in 15 states of the country, plus the District of Columbia, where the capital Washington is located, still suffered from fuel shortages. The most affected area is the District of Columbia, where 88 percent of gas stations were affected, followed by North Carolina at 62 percent; South Carolina, with 50 percent; Georgia at 48 percent and Maryland at 42 percent. Biden predicted on Thursday that the situation would return to normal at the end of this week or early next week. On Sunday, Biden lifted restrictions on road traffic to avoid running out of delivery in light of the shutdown due to a cyber attack on Colonial. Democratic and Republican lawmakers this Friday introduced a bill to protect the country’s infrastructure from cyber-attacks.
