The Colonial Pipeline restarted operations Wednesday, days after it was shut down by a cyberattack. 

Thousands of gas stations in the Southeast ran out of fuel due to both distribution problems and panic-buying. 

The pipeline delivers nearly half of the East Coast's fuel. 

Its operator said it will take several days for deliveries to return to normal.
