Instead, it&rsquo;s because of a possible supply problem.</p><p>&ldquo;There are concerns that we may not be able to get oil at the same pace out of the Middle East, and that certainly what&rsquo;s been driving the increase in gas prices at the pump here now,&rdquo; says Hanni.</p><p>He says that the uncertainty of the Middle Eastern oil supply is affecting the Midwest more than anywhere else in the nation.</p> Tue, 17 Jul 2012 10:16:00 +0000 Kansas Public Radio 2496 at http://kmuw.org Kansas Gas Prices Jump
