Higher gas prices are possible, as oil companies had to take their refineries offline ahead of the storm, putting a crimp in supply. According to AAA, as of Monday, 13% of U.S. refining capacity is down, and typically, a Category 4 storm could mean three-plus weeks before refineries are back to normal operations.
