Alabama governor praises pipeline company’s response to leak

ATLANTA (AP) — Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley says gas prices in parts of the state rose 20 cents over the weekend after a pipeline leak but he didn’t consider that price gouging.

Bentley said Monday that the price sometimes changes that much overnight.

The governor toured Colonial Pipeline’s emergency response center, situated in a luxury resort hotel about 12 miles (19 kilometers) from the pipeline breach, and spent much of a news conference Monday praising the company’s response.
