DALLAS (AP) - Key oil and gas facilities along the Texas Gulf Coast have temporarily shut down as Harvey pounds the region with torrential rain and high winds, virtually assuring gasoline prices will rise in the storm's aftermath.

Dozens of oil and gas platforms have been evacuated, at least three refineries have closed along and at least two petrochemical plants have suspended operations.

Experts predict gas prices will rise by 5 cents to 25 cents per gallon.
