"To compensate for the record decline in jet fuel and gasoline prices, U.S. refineries shifted their yield slate away from gasoline and jet fuel and produced more distillate fuel (Figure 4). In 2019, U.S. refinery finished motor gasoline yield was 46.2%, and distillate fuel yield was 29.7%.

"In April 2020, U.S. gasoline yield fell to 40.7%, a record low, while distillate yield rose to a record high of 38.1%.

"In the U.S. Gulf Coast (Petroleum Administration for Defense District, or PADD, 3), distillate yields were higher than gasoline yields in April for the first time on record."

1.72 to 3 dollars a gallon. And most stations are now selling Reg at same price as diesel.
" Like the Tier 2 program, the Tier 3 program considers the vehicle and its fuel as an integrated system to reduce the impacts of motor vehicles on air quality and public health. The program sets new vehicle emissions standards and lowers the sulfur content of gasoline to a maximum of 10ppm beginning in 2017 "

Laura is headed toward an area that comprises more than 45% of total U.S. petroleum refining capacity and 17% of oil production. Cat 4 with unsurvivable storm surge up to 13' high and drive 30 miles inland.

Yesterday CNBC had an article stating that oil prices had been remarkably unaffected by the storm threat, but that was before Laura was upgraded to a CAT 4. But their premise stands: reserves are high enough and consumption is low enough right now that prices may be minimally affected.

For now. If the refineries are heavily damaged supplies will dry up. About as near a direct hit as you can get. But you are right barring any heavy damage things should just roll along.

Look for prices to go up as the hurricane heads for the refineries at the TX/LA border. Predicting at cat4 hurricane at landfall now.
Three days ago a Pilot station was at $2.39. I looked yesterday and it was $2.49 even befor they knew refineries were in path of Hurricane.

If you are traveling from Minneapolis to Kansas City on I-35, or from Rock Island to Omaha on I-80, there are a cluster of stations just NE of Des Moines in Ankeny -- about two miles north of I-80 at the second exit off I-35. Seven stations currently at $1.959 (two Casey's, Kum&Go, Fleet Farm, Kwik Star, QuikTrip, Murphy USA) plus a Sam's Club at $1.839. I still had about 250 miles to go before needing fuel, so when I did fill the next day I paid $2.049.

Once you get more than a few miles away the usual prices are $2.199-$2.249.
