Gasoline prices in the Hudson Valley are rising following Hurricane Harvey.
The storm caused some of the oil refineries in the Gulf Coast to be temporarily shut down. Triple-A says the national average has gone up 27-cents in the last week to two-dollars-and-64-cents. There is some concern that Hurricane Irma could extend some of the oil production disruptions.
According to Gasbuddy some gas stations in Dutchess County are now charging nearly three-dollars for a gallon of regular.
