Pain at the pump: Gas prices spike in the Midwest
WASHINGTON – Drivers across the country are enjoying low gas prices at the end of summer. However, people in the Midwest are not being treated to those prices.
Crude prices are at a six-year low, and analysts believe prices could go even lower.
In South Carolina, regular unleaded gasoline is under $1.90 a gallon.
However, that benefit is not being felt in the Midwest, where a dramatic spike in gas prices could continue.
Problems at a BP facility in Indiana forced the facility to cut production in half, driving up prices.
Experts say it could take weeks to restore full productivity.
