Hurricane Ian to have limited impact on diesel supplies, economist says

A fuel economist says the nation’s diesel supply shouldn’t face any disruptions from Hurricane Ian.

GasBuddy’s Patrick De Haan tells Brownfield, “Initially, Hurricane Ian was likely to affect an area including the Florida Panhandle, maybe brushing refineries in Louisiana,” he said. “But the good news is Hurricane Ian steered away from some of those major refineries producing diesel and gasoline.”

He says this is good news for farmers with harvest underway, but… “Hurricane season is not yet over,” De Haan said. “There still could be future hurricanes that could make a disruption.”

De Haan says the national average price of diesel has trended a few cents lower in recent months.
