A cyberattack on the Colonial Pipeline is causing a pipeline outage, increased fuel prices and is threatening to cause fuel shortages in states along the pipeline system including Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey and New York.
Element is closely monitoring the situation with our suppliers and, while it is anticipated that these states will experience an impact to fuel supply, it is unclear at this time what the extent of impact will be.
WEX is sending Element a Storm Report twice daily. The Storm Report is a listing of fuel stations in impacted states and territories showing recent transactions to help aid clients in search of fuel. WEX will add states as impacts require.
- Fuel Finder Map: Drivers can use Xcelerate Fuel Finder to find open gas stations. Fuel location details will provide information about the last time an update from the location was received, and those with updates over 24 hours old are likely not viable options.
- Elementfleet.com/covid19: While this situation is not COVID-19-related, the Fuel section of this page will be updated with the latest information to keep you and your drivers informed.
- GasBuddy: Use the Fuel Availability Tracker that helps motorists determine if gas is available.
- Element & WEX: Together with WEX, we are here to help! If drivers experience fuel stations limiting purchase or service card interruptions, please contact your Element account representative or WEX Inc. Customer Service, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling the number on the back of your fuel card.
