Chicago power outages raise gas prices

 

Gas prices have seen a spike in Indiana over the last few days, and one expert says it‘s due to problems in Chicago. Patrick DeHaan of GasBuddy.com says massive power outages in that area forced the shutdown of refineries and pipelines that carry gasoline through Indiana. DeHann says it‘s hard to say when prices will settle back down, but says it won‘t happen until traders regain confidence in the market.
