From the Washington Post:
Gas prices hit a high for the year on Labor Day as the effects of Harvey continued to shut in refineries.
As of Monday the nationwide average for a gallon of gas averaged $2.638, according to the AAA. That’s up from $2.45 on Thursday.
Gas prices are expected to decline by mid to late September because early reports do not show significant damage to refineries in Corpus Christi and Houston, said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokeswoman, in a statement Thursday.
