Hurricane Harvey may have an effect on gas pumps that aren’t anywhere near Texas. With oil refineries shutting down production, we’ll take a look at how much gas prices across the country could rise. Afterwards, we’ll discuss whether Trump will still go through with a government shutdown if he doesn’t get funding for his U.S.-Mexico wall, and then talk about 21st Century Fox’s decision to stop showing Fox News in Britain.
