Motorists are in for a rude awakening if they wait to fill up their gas tanks. Jandu Petroleum told its Facebook followers Thursday morning that gas prices are set to skyrocket up at least 35 cents a gallon due to a leak in the pipeline supplying fuel from Texas to the Midwest. Sister Bay Mobil owner Dave Lienau says this comes at a time when gas prices are usually trending in the opposite direction due to lower demand.
GasBuddy predicts the pipeline will be fixed in the upcoming days, but prices may be slow to fall back to normal as gasoline flows get back to its usual level.
