As I was driving around yesterday I already some of the prices on gas climbing. Gas prices are expected to spike 10 to 20 cents a gallon in the next few days after a winter blast knocked out about a dozen refineries in Texas.

Regular unleaded gas averaged $2.54 a gallon nationally on Wednesday, up two cents from the previous day, according to Triple-A.

The storm has also disrupted package deliveries to customers across the country and product shipments to retailers -- possibly leading to shortages of some items on shelves.

Some experts say prices could creep up to around $3.00 a gallon by summer. I’ve been using GasBuddy to help find better prices on gas. Check out the app or follow them on social to help save a few $$ at the pump.
