Re: 3.09... WTF
power was taken out to a major pipeline that delivers gas from the gulf to the southeast. It is back up, however, many rigs/refineries were taken out by the storm as well, so there is a short term spike for some regions (due to the pipeline being down) and a long term price increase until the supply capacity is returned (the refineries/rigs are back up and running). 3.09 ain't bad, I'm in NC, where gas prices hit 3.49 a couple days ago. They've since gone back down now that the pipeline is back up (they are at 3.19 now, so quit your bitchin. . .) Its not a demand issue really, its a supply side thing. Demand has actually been bolstered as well, by all the shortage announcements (as soon as a shortage is announced, everyone stocks up). Hehehe, lets see GM try and sell those freaking suburbans now, they'll need to start throwing in gas cards with the car in addition to employee pricing. . .
