The reasoning behind it is that oil refineries all over the Gulf Coast are being shutdown. Its debatable how long until they reopen, considering the size and amount of downfaill we'll be seeing from Ike. The storm is hitting near Houston, and many of the nation's largest refineries are in that area.

Gas is between $4-5 right now on the Gulf Coast. Fill up now, wait a few days, and hopefully it'll drop back down.

Sucks for me, because not only do I have to pay more for gas, but it looks like Ike is coming straight up 59, which is the way I'll be driving there this Sunday, so for sure I'll end up in the remnants of it.

Its ridiculous because oil dropped to approximately $100 a barrel today. It should be cheaper than ever if it wasn't for these storms.

Some gas stations are really struggling right now to keep their obligations met to local retailers because refineries in Lousiana have been closed since Gustav because of flooding and power issues.

The two storms together will be making quite an impact by shutting down refineries in two major areas of the Gulf Coast.

Hopefully we'll be better off in a few weeks.

And to think I was google searching about motorcycle info and I came across a thread where somebody was complaining about gas being 1.89..

Damn oil companies. Lets open our own!!!

I'm glad I just filled up 2 days ago. I barely have to drive now that I live less than a mile from campus so this tank should actually last me atleast 2-3 weeks. Hopefully, god that sucks though

You guys did see the news right?

Opec (sp?) has stopped making oil so that IT DOES NOT drop below 100 a barrel, We can't do anything because they are over seas.
