Analysts say the attack on a Saudi Arabian oil field could send gas prices higher in the coming days.

The attack this weekend slowed production by 5 million barrels a day, or 5% of the world's oil supply.

Patrick DeHaan with Gasbuddy.com says we could see the price of gas rise by .15 to .30 cents per gallon.

"This is going to come at a time of year where gas prices almost always plunge, the fall. But now suddenly were going to be dealing with gas prices that feel like spring," said DeHaan.

The average price for a gallon of gas in Milwaukee is $2.47 a gallon.
