yup considering 95% of all production in the refineries in on the gulf coast have been put to a halt i can kinda see why.. i'm thinking like 40% off the oil imported into the US is refined there.. so ya thank katrina

Our receptionist's husband drives a fuel truck. He was told that later tonight that they will be out of fuel and that they will stop deliveries. He works for a smaller independent company but that is still not good.

my store is about 1/4 a mile from getty's to the right and 1/4 a mile from sunoco to the left. i was outside on break doing nothing and i see the getty's guy change it.. 3.14 for 87, 3.39 for 89, 3.49 for 93. and then about an hour later.. the sunoco guy decided to raise his prices too... so i rushed down the other street to mobil and paid 2.91 for premium(93) with the bike, the prelude, and land cruiser.

I just paid $2.88 for 93 octane at a local Shell. Some dude was fillin' up his Explorer and referring to my bike said, "I wish they made those for families." You know he's takin' a major hit. It was like a 99 or 00 model Explorer, too. Talk about no gas mileage.

$3.15 for 87 in New Jersey this morning. It'll be 3.5 by the evening...

Do you guys get the weird eye from gas station attendants when you tell them you want 87 for your RR? They always double question me, like "It's a nice bike, man, are you SURE?" hehe n00bs :)

Here in Pigeon Forge, 2.99, 3.09, and 3.19 at most places. I have seen at the Food City gas n go's as high as 3.32, 3.42, and 3.52 I got lucky on Tuesday night Filled up the HEMI at 2.69 for 87. They were fighting for gas last night at the local stations. The guy were I got my 93 for my bike said that texxaco was out of 87 so the were fillin the 87 with 93. it Pissed me off b/c I paid 3.19 for the same thing in the 2.99 hole. It pays if you know the attendants working if they will give you a heads up on what they are being delivered.

just heard on fox news in atlanta this morning high grade was 6.00!!!! this is sad companies are trying to screw ppl in this time of need. I can understand gas going up maybe 20 cents a gallon but 50 cents or more is bullshit!

3.09 for regular here in Morristown, TN. At least all the prices in eastern TN are consistant and without any signs of price gouging.

Paid $3.30 for 87 here in Indiana, and I drive a minimum of 100 miles a day in my 2000 Jeep wrangler, which we all know is a very good vehicle gas-mileage wise *roll eyes*.
