everything you need comes by truck using diesel;
The Northeast, mid-Atlantic, and Southeast regions of the United States face an impending diesel collapse as supplies reach the lowest ever levels for this time of year.
There is only a 25-day supply of the industrial fuel in storage, we are told. And at least one fuel supply logistics company has had to initiate emergency protocols in anticipation of supplies potentially running dry.
“Because conditions are rapidly devolving and market economics are changing significantly each day, Mansfield is moving to Alert Level 4 to address market volatility,” announced Mansfield Energy in an update to customers on Tuesday.
“Mansfield is also moving the Southeast to Code Red, requesting 72-hour notice for deliveries when possible, to ensure fuel and freight can be secured at economical levels.”
Mansfield currently maintains a fleet of tankers that delivers refined fuel products to more than 8,000 customers across the country. The company remains a critical component of the fuel supply chain, without which truckers would not be able to obtain the fuel they need to keep the country’s economy moving.
In many areas along the East Coast, diesel prices are already “30-80 cents higher than the posted market average because supply is tight,” the company further announced.
“At times, carriers are having to visit multiple terminals to find supply, which delays deliveries and strains local trucking capacity.”
Is the United States on the verge of a total diesel COLLAPSE?
When they say 25-day supply, just to be clear, this means that at any given time, should diesel fuel production just stop entirely, it has the potential to completely run out in less than one month’s time..........more........
