A major fire at one of the country's biggest oil refineries that put scores of people in the hospital with breathing problems will push gas prices above $4 a gallon on the West Coast, analysts said Tuesday.
Gasoline is now over $4 per gallon in four states and Washington, D.C., as a three-month surge in pump prices continues.
"They just lost about one-seventh of their gasoline supply for the summer," Mr. Kloza said.
Tom Kloza, publisher and chief oil analyst at the Oil Price Information Service, said the overnight increase is almost all attributable to price jumps in Plains and some Rockies states.
