Gas prices are expected to spike due to Hurricane Ida.
According to AAA, the national average on Tuesday was $3.15, which was the same as a week earlier but up by 92 cents from a year earlier.
The storm likely took about 13% of U.S. refining capacity offline, AAA reported.
There were nine oil refineries in Ida’s path- four were believed to have shut down ahead of the storm.
The storm caused companies, including Shell, Phillips 66, and Exxon, to pause more than 90% of their oil production and gasoline refining in the Gulf of Mexico.
Gas prices could increase between five to 15 cents due to the storm, according to AAA.
