Gas prices jumped 7 cents across Sault Ste. Marie last night.
The oil and gas industry blamed Hurricane Laura for the rise in price.
Laura affected a lot of the U.S. Gulf Coast.
One of the largest refiners is located in Houston, which was in the path of Laura.
The U.S. Gulf Coast is a major supplier of oil for North America.
Dan McTeague, a gas price analyst, predicts gas prices to drop this weekend.
