Survey: Hurricane Irene to have little impact on gas prices

Posted:

NEW YORK (WKOW) -- It looks like the storm formerly known as Hurricane Irene will have little immediate impact on gas prices.

According to the latest Lundberg Survey, gas prices across the United States have remained about the same over the past two weeks.

And survey publisher Trilby Lundberg says Irene may actually help drive down gas prices soon.

Irene didn't really affect refineries on the East Coast, so fuel supplies won't be hurt.

And since airlines grounded flights, and people didn't drive much in the storm, Lundberg suspects demand for fuel will drop.
