According to user-reported data on the app GasBuddy, gas shortages across southeastern states were still slowly improving Tuesday morning in the aftermath of a cyberattack that forced Colonial Pipeline offline last week. The number of stations without gas were down 30 percent from Thursday morning, the peak of the crisis.

Relatively high rates of outages remained in the Carolinas, Georgia and Virginia. More than 70 percent of stations in the District of Columbia were without gas Tuesday morning, according to GasBuddy.
