Re: OT - gas shortage in Atlanta

OUCH....it's $3.43 here, just filled up this morning.  We had lines  here at 
the gas stations, many were damaged, and trucks were unable to deliver,  so 
there was a shortage for about a week after Ike.  Some areas harder  hit might 
still have stations closed, and thus long lines.  No line this  morning when I 
filled up, but that was at our subdivision gas station.
Houston refineries produce 20-25% of the daily consumption for the  US.  The 
platforms were shut down for several days, and several were  damaged and still 
offline.  The refineries being on the coast suffered some  damage from 
flooding, storm surge, etc. so they are/were slow to get  started.  The Houston Port 
and ship channel were damaged, being closed for  almost a week for clean 
up....not even sure if they are completely  operational. They said that all this 
would have a some impact on the  rest of the nation.

interseting up here in IL doesn't seem to be a shortage and prices  are
actually going down... well, lower anyways.  Ike weekend it went  up to 4.35,
yesterday I filled up at 3.95
