If this is anywhere close to being accurate, this is absolutley ludicrous. I saw in an article earlier where even though the price of crude is dropping, the price of wholesale gas today was between $4 and $5 today for the Gulf Coast area. I understand that the refineries are in peril from the storm and will be closed through at least Sunday if there is no flooding and longer if there is, but do we not think there are reserves out there of gas? I would not think that refineries practice Just in Time inventory storage nor do wholesalers. I can't imagine that even a week of being shut down would lead to a gas crisis. I believe just after or before Gustav, Haley Barbour came on and said not to panic because Mississippi was full of gas. I have heard the $1 increase rumors all afternoon and even heard one that they were going to limit you to 10 gallons and that prices in Vicksburg had already gone up $1. I think that if this happens, we have scare tactics to blame and reactions to rumors. :bash: :bash:

Well I heard all kinda junk about it was gonna be 5 bucks by 5 last nite and all i gotta say is bull$(%^ it was still 3.65 this morning in Vicksburg, they are just tryin to scare you into buying more gas. Its amazing what some people will do when they get scared!! I stopped at a bp station on indiana and it was 3.65 last nite, they had sold out of 87 and this mornin they had gotten refueled and it was still 3.65.....

this is getting stupid, i saw people lined up on my way back from lunch, just absurd. its like they think they will die if their cars dont have gas, just dont go anywhere, or hell, WALK somewhere!!! :shock:

i promise you i wont be filling up my truck anytime soon (mainly b/c i probably dont have enough money on me to fill it up :lol: ). I work with a lot of foreigners and they are all asking me if they should stockpile gas like its going to run out or something, this is nothing but preying on people and gouging, its just insane. i will make it a point not to buy from any place i see inflating the prices. The guy that runs the brittney store here in oxford lives next door to me, i will ask him whether or not he is paying more for it, but i already know the answer.

Just came by a cheveron on 45N outside of Columbus. Price jumped .10 since yesterday and cars were lined up. There was a $40 max. and the clerk inside told somone that they had just run out of gas in Hamilton. This is B.S. The only reason this happens is cause people panic. I got enough gas for 2 weeks, if we are out by then, I guess I will get a couple of days off work.. :W:

coworkers in Monroe La. called today and told us that gas went to $5.00 a gal there. Got a hunting buddy who delivers gas said they could not get gas because the plants where they pick it up at are closed down. One place is in Vicksburg and another one is in Collins, so we are running short supply here.

I stopped in at the Shell at old 78 and Goodman this morning, it was $3.45. It had signs on the pumps asking people to only take 10 gallons at a time due to "the gas shortage". This is so much BS. I'm not for government control of much, but I sometimes wonder about gas prices.

I just checked gasbuddy.com a little while ago and haven't seen a big hike everywhere yet. But, there's always tomorrow. The rumors do the most damage! :bash:
