Pump Prices Jump. Oil Prices Don't

Blitz USA

The price of oil continues to drop, but gasoline prices in Tulsa are sky rocketing!

What gives?

Will Speers with Gasbuddy.com says Tulsa prices are being impacted by a refinery malfunction in the upper mid-west. He says a BP refinery in Indiana, east of Chicago, has shut down after a malfunction. That has caused a gasoline shortage on the short-term market. 

Speers says it  could take up to a month to make the needed repairs. He says our gas prices could go even higher. 

The price of regular unleaded in Tulsa increaased 15-cents per gallon at sunrise this morning.
