Oil and gasoline prices also found support on concerns about Tropical Storm Cristobal as it heads toward the U.S. Gulf Coast, potentially causing disruptions for Gulf oil rigs and tanker deliveries in Gulf ports, along with disruptions at Gulf coast refineries where 45% of the total U.S. gasoline refining capacity is located.
