Pretty alarmist, IMO, but possible.

Although you're being sarcastic, you're actually correct. In that scenario, local prices would go up.

Demand, Refinery Woes Push Gas Prices Up

Kansas Refinery Expected To Be Closed Most Of Summer


Gasoline prices in the Midwest are driving up the national average, which could hit $3 again by the end of the week, AAA said.

Refinery problems in Oklahoma, Kansas, Indiana and Texas are being blamed for the increase.

Also there is a refinery problem in Carson, Calif., but there has been no affect on prices so far.

Gas prices jumped 8 cents in Omaha overnight, according to AAA Nebraska.

The auto club said the average price for a gallon of gas in Nebraska on Thursday was $3.29, just two-tenths of a cent lower than Michigan, which had the country's highest prices on Thursday.

On Wednesday, Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman issued an executive order that will allow gasoline truck drivers to alter their hours of service, reported KETV-TV in Omaha, Neb.

Gas supplies in the state have been tight after flooding in Kansas last week. Industry experts said high waters submerged a Coffeyville, Kan., refinery and waters could keep the 108,000-barrel-a-day facility shut down for most of the summer.

The Kansas facility processes fuel for much of the Midwest, including Nebraska.

Truckers lined up on Wednesday at Magellan Petroleum, north of downtown Omaha. Underground pipelines carry gas there from out of state, then tankers take the fuel to gas stations. Deliveries slowed to a trickle.

"Probably (waited here) about an hour, hour and a half," said trucker John Neff of Wynne Transport SVC.

Said David Nelson of Rawhide Chem Oil, "I'm lucky, and I get paid by the hour, so it doesn't bother me to sit here."

Across the state, gas stations in Kearney, North Platte and Doniphan reported being out of gas for a short time Wednesday.

AAA Nebraska said the price of a gallon of gas jumped 8 cents since Tuesday and 31 cents since a month ago.

Refinery Problems

In central Iowa, gas prices were up as much as 35 cents a gallon this week.

Analysts said supplies are tight in the Midwest because of a high demand and the refinery flood.

"In order to get supplies to the Midwest, retailers here have to pay more to get them away from the East and West Coast. So retailers are jacking up prices to get it here to this area," said analyst Bryan Crowe with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.

Experts said gas prices in Iowa are above the national average. They are expected to remain above $3 a gallon through Labor Day, reported KCCI-TV in Des Moine.

In five Iowa counties Wednesday, prices ranged from $3.09 a gallon to $3.23 a gallon.

Many drivers are skeptical about the reasons behind the high prices.

"I think it's just summer, and they're raising prices again because they know people are going to be out traveling and they know they can make more money if they raise them up," said Michelle Holmes, of Madrid, Iowa.

As prices dog drivers, many are doing whatever they can to keep from filling up as often.

"I set the cruise control on 65, and I don't even go over 65 anymore just to try and get the most out of it," said Chris Reeves, of Ogden, Iowa.

One driver was not complaining about gas. Joe Lynch uses an electric truck to deliver his farm-raised vegetables around Ames, Iowa.

"I like to tell folks that this vehicle has all the advantages and none of the disadvantages of a horse and buggy," he said.

In just six weeks, he's already put 950 miles on the truck. He said it costs him about 2 cents a mile to power it.

"It's a great model for a more sustainable transportation system," Lynch said.

Lynch said his electric truck only goes 25 mph, but he said it's perfect for getting around town.

I have a question for you, Mr. Donger.

I just returned from a road trip during which I travelled through 4 States. When I left Nashville, the price of regular unleaded gasoline was approximately $2.97. In Kentucky, the price went up a dime, In Indiana, the price went up another dime. In Missouri, the price went up another dime or so. And in Kansas, the price went up even more to $3.27 in some places.

Is this due to the cost of transporting the gas? Is it due to the location of refineries?

The reason gasoline is quite high in Kansas now is because of the information contained in post #336.

The variation state-by-state is mostly state taxation.
