Gov. Bill Haslam declared a state of emergency Friday to address the supply of gasoline to Tennessee, and analysts are warning that Tennessee drivers could see higher fuel prices in the coming days. This follows the closure of a major pipeline that runs through the state.
The Colonial Pipeline, which runs from the Gulf Coast to North Carolina, transports millions of gallons of gasoline every day, including to Tennessee. But the line shut down Sept. 9 when a leak was discovered in Alabama, according to the company.
