Some states in the US are currently suffering fuel scarcity and people are already panic buying, IgbereTV reports.

There were long queues at gas stations in the US. Some US citizens were seen buying fuel in plastic bags and kegs

The fuel scarcity is due to a shutdown of the biggest U.S. fuel pipeline by hackers.

Gas stations from Florida to Virginia began running dry and prices at the pump rose on Tuesday, May 11, as the shutdown of the biggest U.S. fuel pipeline by hackers extended into a fifth day and sparked panic buying by motorists.

Ashish Desai, an employee at BP station in Charlotte, North Carolina, said Tuesday was chaotic.

"We had people waiting before we even got here," Desai said, adding that cars began lining up around 6:30 a.m.

He said a handful of pumps were shut down around 2 p.m., but eventually they were all closed and it was unclear when the next fuel delivery would be made.

"It could be tomorrow; it could be next week. I don't know," he told ABC News.

The FBI already confirmed a criminal gang in Russia is to blame for the pipeline outage.

At least their own gas shortage is as a result of cyber attack on their pipeline. Unlike Nigeria that ours is as a result of corruption and years of infrastructural neglect

Ordinary tweet from PPPRA or NNPC sef go automatically create artificial scarcity and panic buying

What is really happening in the world in recent times sef?

Cos practically, every region is going through turbulent times, is it safe to call it end time?

United States citizens are even panic buying like Nigerians.

That's what happens when you vote for a dullard Vegetable like Biden as president. Instead of them to learn from Nigeria's mistake, they too went to vote for a Vegetable like the wicked terrorist in Aso Rock. Now America has gone from fuel abundance to fuel scarcity in less than 5 months. Fuel price in USA has doubled in some places. Una suffering just dey start. See Nigeria now, Buhari don dash Boko Haram like 5 States, dash bandits like 10 States, come dash the remaining 21 States to Killer Fulani Herdsmen. Maybe Biden go soon dash America to Al Qaeda. 911 Part 2 is loading. Una go hear wen
