Prolonged diesel shortages throughout the U.S. are improbable since the U.S. is a net exporter of diesel. U.S.-based diesel buyers can in theory simply offer to pay more than exporters for diesel, thus keeping the diesel supply in the U.S.
However, shortages may happen on the East Coast, where tight pipeline capacity creates supply bottlenecks. A 100-year-old shipping law, known as the Jones Act, also complicates the movement of domestic fuel and encourages producers on the Gulf Coast to favor diesel exports over supplying the domestic market.

THE ORIGINAL LINK (BELOW) DOES NOT HAVE A 1 AT THE END OF IT. LOOKS LIKE THEY CORRECTED IT LOL ✔
