Following Hurricane Harvey, victims suffer from a significant price increase in gas, clean water, and necessities. Fuel prices range from $8-20/gallon in Houston and its surrounding cities, while a case of water is as little as $99. If you want to make a difference and you can afford it, consider donating to one of the following organizations:
