Will Hurricane Florence Be a Threat to Gas Prices


UNITED STATES (KNWA) — Hurricane Florence is threatening the U.S. East Coast, but so far it does not seem to be a threat to gas prices.

When a major storm approaches, the U.S. gasoline markets can be just as unpredictable as the storm itself.

Experts said it’s unclear what, if any, impact Hurricane Florence will have on prices at the pump outside of the impacted area.

Although there are no gasoline refineries in the path of the storm, a major storm like this can threaten the regional supply chain, which can lead to rising prices nationwide.
