  • Harvey may pinch some Gulf Coast refining chemical projects

As almost 7 million Florida residents flee the path of Hurricane Irma, gas is in short supply and prices have risen sharply.

According to AAA's Fuel Price Finder, the price at the pump was as low as $2.55 in the Capitol Trail-Kirkwood Highway area between Wilmington and Newark.

Average retail gasoline prices in Chattanooga have risen 4.4 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.56 per gallon on sunday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 170 gas outlets in Chattanooga. A year ago, the state average was $2.32. There have been spots where gas stations in the region have been unable to keep up with demand. "However, the effects are finally starting to weaken as refineries return to production and fuel begins to flow once again from many Houston refineries".

"The national average gasoline price appears to have peaked last week (on) Thursday at $2.67 per gallon and is beginning to slowly decline for the time being", he said.

Unsurprisingly, prices are even higher in areas in the storm's path. Miami's average price is $2.778, for example.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Signs for Liverpool from Arsenal on Deadline Day
The young winger had seen his role at Arsenal decline - with the arrival of players like Alexis Sanchez penalising him. I actually don't know, it's a bit tricky on the wings to play for Liverpool and as a No.10 - Coutinho is back.

Comparing it to one year ago today, gas in metro Detroit is up 36.8 cents per gallon and 16.8 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. That's about 48 cents more than at the same point a year ago.

The price of gas in MA has not changed this week.

DeHaan said motorists should not expect to see any impact on gasoline prices due to Hurricane Irma because of the path the storm is expected to take.
