Gasoline shortages across the U.S. South are expanding northward as antsy motorists race to fill up with the ongoing shutdown of North America’s largest petroleum pipeline threatening to leave the region without fuel for days.

Fuel terminals at the pipeline’s terminus in Linden, New Jersey, are rationing supplies. The terminals are rationing on a per-day basis, said Gary Kandola, chief financial officer of Express Fuel Distributors Corp., which delivers fuel via trucks to unbranded filling stations in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
