|GAS PRICES RISE AFTER HURRICANE HARVEY|
|Posted on: Aug. 31, 2017 in Driving|
Hurricane Harvey has devastated so many people in Texas. Many homes, schools, and businesses have been lost and it will be a very long time before things can begin to get back to normal.
Another side effect of this catastrophic event that will be felt throughout the country is the rise in gas prices. The exact jump will be different in various regions of the U.S., but prices can rise up to 25 cents a gallon. Because the Gulf Coast of Texas’s oil refinery plants refine nearly one-third of our country’s oil and many are shut down due to unsafe working conditions, less oil will be refined. Gas prices are already rising as a result.
Conserving fuel will become everyone’s concern in the weeks ahead. Here are some tips to help you save fuel and lower your consumption.
Lowering gas consumption is good for the environment and your wallet. In the aftermath of Harvey, it can also help ensure there’s more for everyone. It’s one small way to contribute that can have a big impact on your finances wherever you are in the country.
