Hatters are having some pump shock today at most of the city’s gas stations. Gas prices have skyrocketed to nearly $1.26 a litre over night. While a few stations are still at $1.04, those could rise in the next day or two according to analysts. Dan McTeague of tomorrow’s gas price today dot com says the increase was due to a major refinery in the US Midwest malfunctioning over the past weekend, taking out 240,000 barrels of gasoline output. McTeague says that a number of other refineries in the area are shut down for maintenance as well and that is impacting the price.
