More than 500 complaints filed with Texas AG over Dallas gas prices

Gas prices expected to drop in Vancouver this week

Prices around the Pittsburgh region have gone up since Hurricane Harvey took aim at Texas and the Gulf Coast.

The pipeline provides roughly 40 percent of the Southeast's gasoline.

"The Gulf Coast over the next week will probably see prices go up anywhere from 15 cents to 30 cents per gallon", he said. Mid-grade on Friday was averaging $2.72 and premium was hovering near $3 a gallon.

The analysts said interruptions in supply were isolated and lines were largely the result of people rushing out to top off their tanks.

The largest refinery in the United States, located in Port Arthur, Texas, was among the shuttered.

Futures prices, as of Thursday, were up 45 cents for gasoline and a dime for diesel fuel, compared with the previous week.

By rushing to fill up cars for less, consumers are putting undue demand on the industry, making it harder for it to resupply all of the gas stations that are feeling the pressure, he said.

Part of the pipeline that runs through Texas is shut down and inspections must be done before the entire system can be fully operational again, Colonial Pipeline spokesman Steve Baker said Thursday.

Hurricane Harvey causes gas prices to spike
Gas futures shot up more than 10 percent Thursday, suggesting that prices will keep climbing, according to a report by CNN . Attorney General Ken Paxton responded to the news of $6 and $8 per gallon gas prices around the Metroplex and the state.

The Plains Group Holdings, LP (PAGP) & Enbridge Energy Management (EEQ) Critical Analysis
Endurance Wealth Management Inc. increased its position in shares of Plains Group Holdings, L.P.by 1.1% in the first quarter. Plains Group Holdings, L.P. beats Enbridge Energy Management on 10 of the 13 factors compared between the two stocks.

At a gas station on Sunset Boulevard in West Columbia, the 9 a.m. price for a gallon of gas was $2.25.

The refineries in Texas can't do their jobs right now, so the gas you are getting at the pump is coming from the NY area and European refineries.

They say there's no timeline on how long gas prices could stay high.

The Energy Department is releasing hundreds of thousands of barrels of reserve oil to help ease the shortage in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. "We're not anticipating that, but it is a possibility with potential flooding", Briggs said.

"I'm very confident by the time we're singing Christmas carols we're going to be seeing much cheaper gas", Kloza said. The Texas attorney general has asked anyone seeing gas prices more than $4 per gallon to report them as price-gouging.

Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst at Gas Buddy, had said he expected to see gas prices start to move up Tuesday and Wednesday as retailers made adjustments to rising wholesale prices.
