So apparently the hurricane is causing oil refineries to shut down in TX because of evacuations and such.

I was told by several that gas is supposed to go up by like a 1.25 by tommorow! :shock:

I thought it was a bit extreme, but customers at work tonight were saying it had already topped 4 dollars tonight in Manchester.

So dunno if this is legit but i filled up a 3.49 tonight!

Yeah I heard the same stuff. On my way home from work though I noticed I was below a 1/4 tank so I filled up.

The first 3 stations I went to on my way home were completely full at 10 at night! It would be funny if this turned out to be simple rumor. lol

This is stupid speculation. I have heard everything from a 10 cent hike to a 2 dollar hike. I know it is gonna raise but I doubt it has to raise that much.But here is what I just experienced.

I actually needed gas bc I was on empty and I left work to get gas. I pull up to the Mapco in front of Dodge's Chicken in Hendersonville and they are packed..............at 11:10 PM. So I am waiting in line and I look over and this ******* is driving his company car hauler and has his two personal vehicles on the back waiting to fill all of them up. O and then leaving some @ss comes flying into the gas station and almost clips my bumper. I swear some people are just stupid.

i dont get this shit, they say hardly any oil the us uses comes from america, yet a hurricane hits and gas prices skyrocket, while oil prices are dropping, they are just looking for an excuse to rape us

Yep nothing changed at all in the boro, maybe nashville? The exxon in Nashville right by 9th always seems like $.25 more every time I go by it lol, so that could explain the whole $4 thing..

Last time i checked...we already went waaaay above $4 this year. I know...cuz ive been doing high test all this year. I filled up the other day and it was 4.05. So $4 is no news to me. $5 would hurt, but in the end, i will still need gas, so it wont matter
