"Gas prices suddenly soared over the last week due to heat-related refinery outages that impacted some of the largest refineries in the country, at a time when summer gasoline demand peaks and as gasoline inventories slid to their lowest July level since 2015," says Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. He says drivers have seen average "gasoline and diesel prices rise at the fastest pace in over a year, but the rise seen in the last week should now start slowing."
