Gas prices on the rise following Hurricane HarveyPosted: Updated:
Gas prices are spiking nationwide amid concerns about shortages in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
Experts with AAA say the national average hit a high this year, with prices spiking to about 17 cents a gallon since Harvey hit Texas. That number is expected to climb even higher in the coming days.
Despite the increase, drivers say they have no choice but to fill up and hope for the best.
Gas experts say pains at the pump will continue as refineries along the Texas Gulf Coast struggle to get back online.
