“Gasoline prices continue to slowly advance, but with major storms impeding the activity of refineries, it shouldn’t come as a shock,” said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst.

“I believe that we may see additional impacts with Tropical Storm Lee as many oil platforms have already ceased production, and there may be refineries that shut due to intense rain. The good news is that I do expect gasoline prices to being falling closer to the end of September as we switch back to cheaper Winter gasoline and the peak of hurricane season passes,” DeHaan adds.
