“This uneasy balancing act may last until we get beyond hurricane season and its threats to Gulf Coast oil and gas production and refining.”Pump prices will continue to face issues such as rising oil prices, higher gas demand and tighter supplies.Data from the Energy Information Administration said demand for gas nationally was up 2.6 percent in the past week, while domestic gasoline stocks dropped by 1.2 percent in the same time.Also, with Saudi Arabia planning to continue a cut in production through the end of the year, crude oil was selling at $87.51 on Friday, up $1.96 from a week earlier.
