Experts say gas prices will rise following Hurricane Harvey.

Already in Rockford, the average price is $2.32 per gallon. That’s up more than 2¢ from a week before. Nationally prices have climbed to $2.36.

GasBuddy.com suggests drivers may notice a spike for quite some time because of the Texas refineries impacted by Harvey.
