Why has the mid-Atlantic and NE US seen higher #gasprices and diesel this year? Primarily, because its lack of refiners in the region. The US is sliced into various markets, all with slightly different supply and demand. Big difference right now between PA and OH- big reason is PA is in a tight market, OH is not. In fact, while state gas taxes vary, this map is the key to why some neighboring states can be higher or lower than each other.

Seeing things being said about @EIAgov implied gasoline demand not lining up w/ our data, so allow me. the methodology between our dataset and theirs is vastly different. they measure how gasoline moves *toward* retail, not retail gallons, which is what our data captures. Having said that, our data, checked multiple ways, clearly shows a rise in demand last week (~2%), and theirs showed a 7.61% drop. This could mean many different things, but I do prefer retail gasoline numbers as opposed to measuring how gallons move toward the dispense.

I'll try to sum up how much longer getting gasoline will require more effort than usual, in my words, how long it'll be a headache if you need fuel. About 2-5 days of headaches if you need fuel in
AL, DE, MS, WV. The situation is pretty under control. Outages should immediately be improving.
