BALTIMORE - As the East braces for Hurricane Sandy, many consumers were surprised by discoveries at the pump.
Many times gas prices soar as powerful storms set in to touch land.
With Sandy, that hasn’t been the case. In fact, the national average for a gallon of gas dropped 13 cents this week.
According to Christine Delise with AAA Mid Atlantic, it’s because the “super-sized” East Coast storm hasn’t threatened any refineries.
“It all depends on what the hurricane does along the East Coast,” she said. “Should refineries be disrupted, motorists may see a slight spike in the coming days.”
