Better plan on filling up tonight or first thing Monday morning, folks.
The oil and gasoline market opened overseas just moments ago and has already jumped enough to force a price hike. At this writing, gasoline is up 8-cents per gallon. Local gasoline retailers aren’t making more than 10-cents per gallon today, and with a large hike, it is very likely we’ll see a hike to $3.899-$3.959 tomorrow.
Hurricane Ike is currently a Category 3 storm over Cuba. I’ve just reloaded the wind forecast table from the NHC, and it looks much more promising (good) than even last time it was updated!
While Ike’s landfall hasn’t yet been pinpointed, it looks as it will track west of where Gustav blew through.
I would definitely fill up tonight (like I did for $3.66)!
P.S.- I’ve made some slight changes to the interface- bolded the post titles, and put the date, author, and comments DIRECTLY under the title instead of the bottom of the post. If you have feedback, e-mail me!
