A pipeline leak that spilled about 6,000 barrels of gasoline in rural Alabama means drivers across the eastern U.S. will likely be paying more at the pump.

The Sept. 9 leak of about 250,000 gallons of fuel from Colonial Pipeline’s line near Helena has halted the flow of gasoline from the Gulf Coast to the Southeast. The company has shifted its production to its line that typically carries diesel, jet fuel and home heating oil, but the primary gas line is expected to be out until early next week.
