  • Why Gas in Indiana is Higher, and Could Reach $2.95 a Gallon

GasBuddy says the rise is due to Hurricane Harvey. Prices in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and IL are expected to hit the highest levels since 2015.

"Most of the fuel delivered to the B.C. Interior comes from Edmonton and Edmonton fuel pricing is based on USA mid-west gas price futures set on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange".

GasBuddy says gas prices will eventually drop once the leak in the Explorer Pipeline is repaired.

"The issues at work that are driving prices up so quickly: refinery maintenance, a major pipeline outage and low gasoline inventories", says DeHaan.

These cuts have resulted in gradual gasoline increases throughout the country, but due to the regional issues mentioned above, customers in the Great Lakes region have experienced the brunt of the pain at the pump.

After several months of low gas prices, a price spike could be on the way for Stateline area drivers according to a report by the Chicago-based gas monitoring website GasBuddy. "Now with Harvey gone, that pushed-back maintenance is colliding with other planned maintenance leading to a condensed maintenance season".

Gender inequality widening after decade of progress - WEF
Women in the United States do find parity with men in educational attainment and get close on metrics of health and survival. The further away the score is from 0, the higher the "distance to parity" in the country for that sub index appears to be.

Second, the Explorer Pipeline, with the capacity of almost 700,000 barrels per day, sustained a leak last week, interrupting the ability for relief supplies to be sent from the Gulf Coast.

The highest recorded average price for IN since 2008 was $4.25 IN May 2011.

Even though the storm didn't cause extensive pipe damage, some refineries waited to shut down for normally scheduled maintenance until after all was said and done.

As the map below shows, central IN seems to be getting hit the worst, with gas prices rising highest IN the areas surrounding Indianapolis. Prices in Coldwater Thursday morning ranged from $2.63 to $2.69 per gallon.

Gas Buddy expects the Explorer Pipeline to be fixed within the next few days, but it could be even longer before gasoline flows return to normal.
