Comment on the October 21 prediction: Unless you lived in Indiana, or will count Saturday as a part of “next week”, the prediction was WRONG.
Monday, October 29, 11:00AM: Hurricane Sandy is serious, and they are predicting high winds in the Midwest, but nothing like what they may face on the coast with storm surges from the ocean. We need to worry about price surges for gasoline, though. Recent history of gas prices and hurricanes has not been pretty, especially when the refineries on the gulf coast are threatened. We don’t have that issue this time, but that doesn’t mean we won’t get some sort of unwelcome price hike this week. On the other hand, we’ve seen after these events that prices can drop dramatically, too. So, of course no prediction right now. Be prepared for $4 gas, or $3 gas. — Ed Aboufadel
