AAA says Hurricane Michael likely won't impact gas prices

KIMT NEWS 3- Hurricane Michael reached ground Wednesday as a Category 4 causing severe damage, but those with AAA say there is chance the impacts could be felt all the way in the Midwest.
Those with AAA say as of right now they don’t expect a fuel shortage or price hikes from the storm, but say if offshore refineries are damaged there could be a price increase.
Richard Thomas of Mason City says this probably won’t change his driving habits too much as he only drives his vehicles an average of 8,000 miles annually.
“We drive every day,” he said “But we don’t drive too far. I’m retired so this won’t have a big impact on me.”
Those with AAA say the Midwest has seen increases over the last month. They say that is because of maintenance to refineries as well as the cost of crude oil going up.
