GARY, Ind. (WOOD) — Gas prices may spike over the weekend, analysts say, after a big problem at a refinery in Gary, Ind.
A major malfunction that occurred last week at the BP Whiting Refinery is having a serious impact on production. That, combined with a switch to summer gas reserves, could drive gas prices up around the Midwest.
GasBuddy.com analysts haven’t noticed an uptick so far, but they warn that could change in the next day or two, with gas rising to $2.59 or $2.69 per gallon by next week.
