(WTNH) — Gas prices could increase because of Hurricane Ida, which slammed down on New Orleans.
As of Monday afternoon, more than 94-percent of oil production in the Gulf was shut-in. Officials are still in the process of inspecting facilities and are working to get an understanding of how much damage they sustained.
AAA said a Category 4 storm could mean that it will be at least three weeks before refineries are back to normal.
The average price of gas in Connecticut is $3.17, the same as last week.
The national average is $3.15, down a penny from a week ago.
