    I just wanted to say good luck to the people in Louisiana and Texas. I hope that everybody comes out ok from the storm. It's a real monster of a storm, Hopefully you guys have already evacuated from this. We all will be thinking of you guys stay safe.

    On a side note I'm sure that gas prices are going to up real quick.

    Everyone in that area is in my thoughts and prayers. To the people that are in the strike zone, fuel prices are the least of their concerns.
    Baten down the hatches.

    Great point about gas prices. Most of our countries refineries are located along the Mississippi river around New Orleans or Texas Bay Town area just out side of Houston.

    Hurricane Charlie and his brothers to follow had a Huge impact of the Florida economy. If we think Gas prices are high now, we might be wishing for those prices in the near future.

    who cares about gas prices. We are more oncerned for our lives and other people. We just caught our first taste of the rain and some 25mph gusts. We got all buttoned down and we are going to ride it out.

    Sorry im a little more concerned about our home, business and my family than gas prices. Thanks for always thinking of your wallets guys.

    Only reason we have a shortage here today is all the people evacuating new orleans. We are just north of Hattiesburg MS

    They are predicting cat 3 to 4 winds here around 125mph or so. Please pray for us and stop worrying about gas prices. $3 a gallon wont kill you. A cat 5 hurricane will. Yes gas prices suck a$$ but so does the fear of this storm coming at you.

    to all the other people affected your in our thoughts and prayers... be safe not macho about this one.
