Expect to pay more at the gas pump thanks to Hurricane Isaac.

Analysts for GasBuddy.com predict people in South Bend will pay 10 to 35 cents more for fuel by Sunday.

This increase could start as early as Tuesday.

Yesterday, tropical storm Isaac and regional refining issues caused wholesale gas prices to reach their highest level this year.

A wholesale price is what stations pay on new gasoline shipments.

They jumped 35-cents Monday.

Analysts say it's a temporary increase, but gas prices tend to fall slowly meaning motorists may not feel any relief until late September.
