Consumers can thank Hurricane Harvey and now Hurricane Irma, for the spike in prices.

MIAMI — Gas prices are up, and they may go even higher thanks to a 1-2 hurricane punch.

Most gas retailers in Miami have unleaded regular at $2.69 a gallon.

That’s up from an average of $1.83 in late July.

Consumers can thank Hurricane Harvey and now Hurricane Irma, for the spike in prices.

The national average as of 2 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 7, was $2.67 and in Oklahoma, it was $2.39 according to the website

The state average is up from $2.24 a week ago, $2.13 a month ago and by 33 cents a year ago at this time.

As recently as 10 days ago, Miami had the second lowest gas prices in the state, $2.04.

“Oklahomans are paying increased prices at the pump along with all of America, but we are fortunate to be the second lowest priced state in the country,” Oklahoma AAA spokesman Mark Madeja said in a release.

Harvey already had forced oil refiners in the Gulf of Mexico to shut down, and now Hurricane Irma is looming on the horizon.

Irma appears increasingly likely to rip into heavily populated South Florida early Sunday.

As a result, Gov. Rick Scott has declared an emergency and mandatory evacuation orders are in place for parts of the Miami metro area and the Florida Keys. Parts of South Florida were placed under a hurricane watch Thursday.

Forecasters said Irma could rake the entire Atlantic coast of Florida and rage on into Georgia and South Carolina.

Georgia's governor has ordered a mandatory evacuation starting Saturday from the state's Atlantic coast ahead of Hurricane Irma. That includes the city of Savannah.

With more than 50 inches of rain, Harvey set a record for the greatest amount of single-storm rainfall for the continental United States.

"Thanks to Harvey shutting down an extensive amount of refining capacity, the national average gasoline price saw its largest weekly jump since Katrina hit the Gulf Coast in 2005 when the national average jumped 49 cents in a week,” senior petroleum analyst Patrick DeHaan said in a press release. “Every state has seen average gas prices rise, Texas saw shortages at hundreds of stations — it’s been one of the most challenging weeks faced in years. Until Texas can recover from Harvey, gasoline prices will likely continue to remain elevated. The situation is beginning to look up, with many refineries either back online or in the process, and gasoline production is ramping back up.”

DeHaan said it might be weeks or longer before all refineries are back online.

With the Colonial Pipeline having shut down last week due to a lack of products, Florida and the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic may be a touch and go area for gasoline, he said.
