Last weekend, gas prices were around two-dollars-and-40-cents ($2.40) a gallon.
Experts predict the price will jump about 25-cents by the end of September.
Peterson says how long the higher prices last depends upon how long the Saudi facilities are down.
President Trump has said he’s prepared to tap U.S. petroleum reserves if oil production in Saudi Arabia doesn’t rebound quickly.
