Well, it looks like gas prices are fixing to get even higher than they have been thanks to this little "accident".

The article stated that at this time they did not know the cause of the explosion, but did state that two employees did die in the blast. They had been sent to check out reports of a leak in the pipeline.

These pipelines supply 62 percent of the crude refined in the Chicago area and 82 percent of Ontario's demand. The article doesn't mention when any of the pipelines will be back on line.
