WEST FARGO - Fuel tanker trucks lined up more than a mile east of the Magellan Pipeline Co. terminal Thursday as the ongoing harvest, oil exploration and rush to finish road and flood control projects before the snow flies have created a shortage of diesel fuel in the region. Burl Ingebretsen of Sabin, Minn., got in line at 5 a.m. to pick up a load of diesel for a beet farm. At that time, his truck was at 45th Street South in Fargo.
