Ontario gas prices headed for major spike in wake of Harvey

Gas prices are now below $2 a gallon on average in Tennessee

"While it may seem like bad timing, what's happening at the U.S. Gulf Coast is having a very big impact, with so many refineries shutting down".

The site's sources say prices in Quebec and B.C. jumped by several cents per litre since Thursday, when their provincial averages were just below $1.20 per litre.

Analysts say average gasoline prices across Canada will continue to rise this weekend after jumping nearly eight cents per litre since hurricane Harvey roared ashore in Texas last Friday.

Senior petroleum analyst Dan McTeague, of GasBuddy.com, predicted on Thursday that gas prices were about to skyrocket in Ontario. At the start of the week, prices were about $1.14 a litre.

Nebraska deploys National Guard to provide hurricane relief
The Coast Guard and the Marines Reserves are conducting air search and rescue operations in the Port Arthur, Texas, area. The Houston police chief Art Acevedo said this, "They looked for him, they helped, they just couldn't find him".

The lowest price in the Thunder Bay area is the Husky station on Alloy Drive and Balmoral Avenue, where gas is still listed t $1,119 a litre.

"And a potential increase for Sunday", McTeague added.

This recent soar in gas prices is caused by the devastation to the Gulf Coast caused by Hurricane Harvey, which interrupted supplies to the East Coast.

"There's definitely a couple factors at play here", said McTeague.

After spending a number of years in the Estudiantes Youth Academy, Foyth made his Primera Division debut on 19 March 2017 aged 19 years and 2 months.

The Eastern Canadian price hike can be read as a "shot across the bow" to signal that refineries in Ontario and Quebec don't have excess product to sell into the USA market, Mr. McTeague said.

"The refineries are actually built to withstand a hurricane", he said. "And with that they'll be able to feed product into the Colonial Pipeline and restore inventories in the northeastern US", said Michael Ervin, senior vice-president with Kent Group Ltd.

"We're going to be looking at a much longer, protracted period of time when prices are going to be significantly higher than we expect heading into the winter turnover season".
