Kinder Morgan, the energy company that supplies fuel to Las Vegas and parts of California, has been shut down due to a leak at a gas station in Long Beach, California, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
Vegas is busier than usual this weekend because of the Super Bowl.
Clark County released a statement about the pipeline leak:
“Clark County emergency managers are aware of a leak at the Kinder Morgan pipeline in California. This pipeline supplies gas storage facilities in southern Nevada with unleaded and diesel fuel. We are currently monitoring the situation, believe we have adequate supply and do not anticipate an immediate impact on gas availability.”

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported:
The pipeline that supplies fuel to Las Vegas was shut down Thursday after a leak was discovered at a gas station in Long Beach, California.
Energy company Kinder Morgan has shut down its 566-mile CalNev pipeline to investigate a spill at its station in Watson, California, the company said in a statement. The pipeline supplies gasoline, diesel and jet fuel to locations throughout California and Nevada, including Las Vegas, according to the company’s website.
Katherine Hill, Kinder Morgan’s head of corporate communications, said only the pipeline that delivers unleaded and diesel fuel to the valley was affected and that the leak had no effect on jet fuel deliveries to Harry Reid International Airport.
A report filed by the company Thursday said Kinder Morgan contained the spill and no injuries were reported as a result of the incident.
“The appropriate regulatory agencies have been notified and an investigation will be conducted into the cause and quantity of the release. We are working closely with our clients on possible impacts,” the statement said.
