Hurricane In Texas Will Drive-Up Gas Prices

Hurricane Harvey set to pounce Texas — a dangerous storm that could hit all of us in the wallet by driving-up gas prices. Because of all the refineries along the gulf coast that turn out gasoline. Some will shut down until the storm passes — meaning a supply problem. Prices likely to start going up right away — GasBuddy doesn’t think it will be as bad as Hurricane Katrina — which caused prices to jump 40-cents a gallon overnight.
