Damage to energy supplies from Hurricane Harvey combined with the traditional increase in Labor Day travel is already leading to higher gas prices in MA, and U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry is tapping into the nation's strategic reserves as part of the federal government's response to the massive storm.

"Once the water recedes, those refineries may take a couple days to get back online".
Harvey hit Texas as a hurricane August 25 and destroyed tens of thousands of homes while also disrupting airlines and causing prices at gas pumps to jump. Argo said deliveries should resume this weekend if refined fuel products are available from Texas refineries. It shut down Wednesday as Harvey made a third landfall in southwest Louisiana, bringing flooding to the Port Arthur area. That would have a devastating impact on the region far beyond gas prices.
