Hurricanes And Gas Prices

In 2011, Hurricane Irene drew the attention of the media and meteorologists as it approached the Northeast coastline. Since very few hurricanes actually make it to the New England coastal area and make impact, it's important to pay attention to the effects these storms have when they do make landfall. When Irene hit New York City in  late August, gas prices shot up temporarily as people rushed to fill up their cars while they could. With Hurricane Sandy, history is likely to repeat itself.
