Unable to execute docker command while docker is running

I am trying to run the following docker commmand:

docker run --name my_postgres -d -p 127.0.0.1:5432:5432 -v /volumes/data:/var/lib/postgresql/data postgres

But I receive the following error:

  • 2015/09/15 20:57:57 Cannot connect to the Docker daemon. Is 'docker -d' running on this host?
    

    This is odd since I have docker up and running on my computer:

    ~  ps aux | grep docker
    root     31083  0.1  0.0 355636 15420 ?        Ssl  20:58   0:00 /usr/bin/docker.io -d

    Use sudo docker run …. or read the following page to enable non-sudo run for your docker

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
