New Orleans and an Oil Crisis

First, my thoughts to all those in New Orleans. The death toll is expected to rise into the thousands, and the city may be abandoned. It's terrible, thinking that this couple be one of the biggest natural disasters in a good long while. Hopefully, people will be able to rebuild their lives after this.

Gas prices broke $3 today, jumping almost 40 cents in a day. My dad came home, told me that somewhere down south, a vital pipeline broke, and several oil pump stations in the ocean were damaged. Gas prices are going to skyrocket in the next couple days. My advice: If you don't have to drive, don't. Stock up on gas tonight, before the prices start going up. My guess is that bus and air fares will go up a little, and that we'll start seeing some more SUVs on the used market in about a month or so.
