    I just heard at work gas is going up over $5 because of the hurricane. Not everyone in the Country. Chicago, Indiana, Michigan, California, and a few others. People are lined up at the gas stations before they jack up the prices. The town is Tecumski, or something like that. A couple hours away. I'm expecting gas to be $5 when I leave work.

    Anyone else hear anything?

    PS. The hurricane is God punishing Texas for GW Bush. :cuckoo:

    Me <---- bought gas here in California today. $3.59 a gallon (reg. unleaded) ... it has been this price now for a week or so. The lowest we have seen it in months! But I will not be surprised if it goes up because of the hurricane.

    Plus there will be increases in .... the price of Beef and everything else that comes from Texas, and surrounding states. :eusa_eh:

    This is another sign of BDS, explaining the suffering and dying of women and children of a natural disaster on partisan politics.....:cuckoo:

    It is just the natural order of charging extra for stupid.

    Of course, since I do most of my moving around by bike, I don't buy much gas. I fill up maybe three times every two months.

    There is no reason for panic buying.

    Of course, I may be crying when I fill up next friday. But I am hoping by then rationality may have returned.:eusa_pray:

    Little reminder that gas went up to $4 a gallon right before the 2008 election. On Bush's watch!

    And between July 2008 and January 2009, oil fell from $140/barrel to $40/barrel.
    On Bush's watch!
