We just had to laugh at Jennifer Grandstander. When we live in a state where we have to make every penny count does she seriously think there will not be a run on gas?? Our goverment is SO out of touch with what reality it is for the rest of us. If they have to shut down refinerys in Houston gas will go up. But to go on the air & say oh dont worry, it will be fine? What a joke!

Unlike the 1000 or more in Louisianna today who are flooded, thanks to the decision to live in the path of an angry ocean. I am sure that, as with Katrina, the residents will be bellyaching that the gubmint isn't doing enough to help them quickly rebuild in the same place again. I have difficulty sympathizing with those who knowingly place themselves in harm's way.

I know we here in Michigan are freaking out about gas prices. But has anyone read the article about it being "too late" to evacuate Galveston and that thousands of people might need to be rescued? I'm surprised there hasn't been more discussion about that yet.
I'm off to the bank to take out a loan to drive to work next week.
I did and now our tax dollars gets to rescue the people that were dumb enough to stay. We'll pay for the gas to rescue them and take them to saftey....no problem!!! I think they should take the money used in gas to rescue the people outta their FEMA money!!!

This is crazy...we saw lines of cars in Mt Pleasant too and can't figure out why!

I can't believe Wood is saying that prices will go up....13 is saying exactly what Granholm has said...DO NOT PANIC! Even if the article was one thing this morning....they can change it and say not to panic...but they don't do that!

That's why I generally don't come to this site...but was curious what they were saying about the gas prices...now I know!

Its just a chance for the oil companyies to make a killing. Wood TV just helps spread the rumoe and that lame duck governor is not going to do a thing but line her own pockets. Look how she let detroit got out of hand with the mayor

+++ GO TO:

http://www.ToxicPrices.com -- and see that we NEVER need be concerned by any hurricane caused disruptions -- by getting ALL OF OUR OIL from 6 LAND-LOCKED states!

(Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, North and South Dakota, plus Montana)

"They say it is all "shale," like its a bad thing, however, they neglect to mention that we know there is at least 75 BILLION BARRELS of Oil in LIQUID form, most no more then 1,000 feet below surface.

But getting shale oil itself is also EXTREMELY profitable, whenever oil by the barrel is selling at just $30.00 per barrel, and always easy to get, even if or when it is referred to as "shale oil."

STOP their madness!

YES! I especially have a problem with those in the areas which are at or below sea level. This isn't rocket science people!

update from Patrick!!

Speedway has just hiked for the first time EVER on a Saturday. They made the jump to $4.19!
TheGasGame has independently confirmed gas prices of $4.99 in areas of Tennessee (all over!), a few stations in North Carolina, and Kentucky. We’ve also confirmed prices of $4.69 in Virginia, North Carolina, and Georgia. Also prices of OVER $4.49 in South Carolina, Arkansas, Alabama, Virgina, Texas, Mississippi, Florida, and INDIANA. STAY TUNED.

According to a source familar with wholesale rack prices in Grand Rapids, he says prices that stations get charged went up last night. If the station purchases branded gasoline (such as Shell, BP, Mobil, etc) they price rose 18-cents per gallon. If the station buy unbranded gasoline (usually the cheaper stations) their price rose 25-cents per gallon.
This is a very odd situation. You’ll likely see stations that need more fuel try to raise prices leading to a large-scale, super UNORGANIZED price hike. Stations do not want to lose that much per gallon and will be forced to sell higher. Again, this could create an odd price hike situation.

We may see $4.19-$4.35 before the day is out, but we’ll see. This likely is happening all over the Midwest.

THE SKY IS FALLING THE SKY IS FALLING!!!!!!! Everyone just chill out. Yes it sucks....I know, but there is not much we can do about it. All we can do is go along for the ride and hope for the best. Hard to think that...but in these times that's all we can do.

“Dude, Where's my car?”

Just all in preparation for $5.00 a gallon next year...
