Gas prices on the rise in IL

Because of Hurricane Harvey, some refiners delayed maintenance to cover production losses from the affected area.

GasBuddy estimates gas prices could soon rise to $2.99 in MI, $2.95 in IN and $2.89 in OH and Kentucky.

Gas prices spiked by almost a quarter on Monday to between $2.65 and $2.69 at many southwest MI locations.

Motorists are cautioned to prepare for these higher gas prices soon.

And even though you hear often that there is a glut, or an oversupply of gas, all of these issues have pushed gasoline inventories to their lowest levels in more than two years. Prices in MI could reach as high as $2.99, in IN at $2.95, in OH and Kentucky drivers could be paying $2.89 per gallon.

The Kentucky average price was listed at $2.429/gallon, and the national average was $2.508.

He says a major problem that the Great Lakes doesn't have, is the ability to re-supply via waterborne shipments and pipeline deliveries.

"Oil prices have rebounded in the last week, led higher by geopolitical tensions and declining inventories, leading gasoline prices in some parts of the country to make an unseasonable move higher", said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.

GasBuddy is a leader in crowd-sourced information for, real-time fuel prices at more than 140,000 gas stations in the U.S, Canada and Australia.

DeHaan expects relief once the Explorer Pipeline is repaired. But it could still take days for gasoline flows to return to normal.

Along with the Explorer pipeline getting fixed, McTeague said a lot of the major refineries down south are conducting annual maintenance a bit later than usual.

Nationally, gas prices decreased 8.9 cents per gallon since September and are 25.0 cent per gallon higher than they were one year ago.
