Colonial Pipeline Company, which delivers more than 100 million gallons of gasoline between Houston and the East Coast, said it may be able to return to service as early as Monday or Tuesday.

The company said restoring the line will depend on safe access to locations and no major flood damage during facility inspections. So more fuel could be on the way to North Texas.

The NBC 5 Responds team is still seeing a number of gas stations in the DFW area that are out of fuel, but transportation experts say the projected shipments could help alleviate this issue.

Many drivers said the long lines at the pump have shortened a bit each day, giving many North Texans hope as they enter the holiday weekend.
