With all eyes on Gustav, and the advant of the storm making landfall, sometime tomorrow, in New Orleans, I have pondered another question. Will this storm, affect the price of gas? Or should I say, will they use this as an excuse to jack up the prices, (as I predict they will) on gas at the pump?
I had predicted, when gas started going down, that on Labor Day week-end, the next holiday that was approaching, we would see those prices jump up, and not by a mere penny or two at that. Well I don't know about your area, but here it went up roughly .23 cents a gallon over nite. Thursday evening, it was 3.46. By Friday morning it was $3.69 a gal. No big deal of course when you consider many are still of the mindset that anything under $4.00 a gal is a deal. Not that I am one of them, who considers this a deal, but it seems some do.
So whats your take on this? Do you believe gas will begin to soar again, with the storm being the reason? And what is the price of gas in your general area right now?
