Gas prices in Bulloch County rise due to Hurricane Harvey

AAA said in the coming days, gas prices in SC and North Carolina could increase by 5 to 25 cents per gallon.

IL had the fourth-largest weekly increase in gas prices at 6 cents.

Approximately a quarter of oil refining capacity in the Gulf Coast was taken offline, according to forecasts by Oil Price Information Services. Analysts predict the price of gasoline will jump between 5 cents and 15 cents across the country this fall.

Overnight, Montreal gas prices went up 10 cents to $1.26.9/litre of gas, reports CBC. But that number should rise, since the Texas Gulf Coast is home to almost a quarter of the country's gasoline production.

Most stations were reporting in the 114.8-116-cents range.

Besides gasoline prices, also impacted is the price for natural gas, according to Charlie Burd, executive director of the Independent Oil and Natural Gas Association of West Virginia. In the Coeur d'Alene area, the price averaged $2.67, up 17 cents from a month prior. That would likely help to cap the national increase, which AAA expected could climb to $2.50, the first time since August 28, 2015 it would reach that price marker.

Historic rainfall and flooding in southeast Texas will cause gas prices to go up.

Post-eclipse pump prices are still climbing across Idaho amid high local demand, but higher prices and tight Gulf Coast supplies due to Hurricane Harvey are unlikely to derail Labor Day plans to visit family and friends to cap off the summer, says AAA.

AAA Northeast said Monday its latest weekly survey found self-serve, regular selling for an average of $2.26 per gallon. Gas is $2.49 a gallon at the Quick Fuel near Iron Street and 12th Avenue. "Despite the country's overall oil and gas inventories being at or above five-year highs, until there is a clear picture of damage and an idea when refineries can return to full operations status, gas prices will continue to increase". The source added that the impact from the storm would "linger for several days". Tuesdays are recommended for "topping off" because while prices are not the cheapest, they're still usually pretty good. There, drivers will pay $2 a gallon at the Murphy USA on Eisenhower Road.
