(WTVY) President Trump is releasing half a million barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. The move is designed to keep gas prices in check and reduce the chance of shortages after Harvey knocked out several refineries.
13 refineries in Texas are now shut down, or are in the process of closing.
Analysts say the closures are reducing the nation's refining capacity by 20%.
