Fuel supply issues have been an area of concern in 2021. In May, a ransomware attack on the Colonial Pipeline by the hacker group DarkSide put fuel in short supply in several states and prompted the FMCSA to issue an emergency declaration in an effort to speed up fuel deliveries.

Over the late spring and early summer, intermittent fuel shortages were reported in several states. This was largely been blamed on a shortage of available tanker truck drivers to transport fuel and not on supply issues.
