Midwest Gas Prices Skyrocketing

Gas prices are rising rapidly in mid-Michigan Wednesday. A gallon of regular unleaded was selling in the $3.70 range Tuesday, but today prices are moving into the $4.20 range.

The reason? According to Patrick DeHaan, Senior Petroleum Analyst for GasBuddy.com, a leak in a major pipeline servicing the Midwest has forced the whole pipeline to be shut down. On Tuesday Trans Canada shut down its Keystone Pipeline running from Alberta when the leak was discovered. There is no estimate on when the pipeline will be repaired.
