Gas prices may move higher this week

GasBuddy Blog -- Motorists be prepared: gasoline prices have already started to move higher in some areas, and others will likely see their prices follow suit in the coming days.

While much of the increase was related to power issues with pipelines and refineries after torrential rains and thunderstorms, prices would have likely moved up anyway- albeit a smaller amount.

Wholesale gasoline prices have advanced in all regions, and the Great Lakes certainly stands out as wholesale prices in those areas have risen a whopping 40c/gallon in the last week alone....

rick: conservation seems to be an un-pronouncable word for most Americans -- therefore, they seem to not care to pay attention to it.

Our gas prices have been dropping here in the NorthEast. However, it may be short lived. The governor here has proposed a tax increase per gallon. We just have to enjoy the present while it lasts

Flooding is localized but apparently it does not matter when it comes to pushing prices higher. Any negative news will work.

already jumped here. NO since in this. If the sun comes out will prices go down. It would seem that way. If it rain to much they go up.
