Will The Petrol Go Dry?

Hurricane Katrina has had another ripping effect, that Americans may see in the following days. The hurricane has forced a cut off of gas production facilities in the Gulf of Mexico, and many of those facilities received damage in the storm. Normally the Gulf region provides for a third of domestic oil production. The cost of gasoline has jumped in much of the country, and will likely rise sharply in the days to come. Regions of Georgia and Florida are expecting severe gas shortages. The two main pipelines that bring gas and jet fuel to Atlanta are down, and the region now only has a two-day supply of gasoline.

There is no shortage here in Florida. Please stop spreading false rumors. You are only making a bad situation worse. I live in Florida and there is no shortage.

Alva spreading a rumor like this is irresponsible but somehow I wouldn't expect anything less from you.

Perhaps if people like that last commenter would read and watch the REAL news once in a while, they might know something about what they are commenting on.

There are shortages in many states, and earlier Bush himself asked people to not buy gas unless they need it.

It's always good to stay informed.

Miami,
I got this information, at least about Florida particularly from local ABC, and NBC affilates in Florida. Jeb Bush even commented on it, asking for Floridians to conserve. My understanding of the current situation is that the gas in reserves will likely go dry in a 2-3 days. Gas prices all over the US is expected to jump to 4 dollars a gallon by next week.

=====> I live in Florida honey. I am living and breathing here in one of the states he mentioned. i can tell you that there is no shortage. I can drive to about 300 stations here at any point in time and get gas without massive lines or shortages. You don't live in Florida or else you would have noticed it too. But how can actually being where the news is and making up your own version of it compare right? Idiot.......

======>Did I mention OTHER states? I mentioned Florida and most specifically SOUTH FLORIDA. Reading is fundamental.

=====>It's better to BE informed.

=====>It is preceisley these false rumors that is making our recovery here difficult. Before the storm even hit Port Everglades received a HUGE shipment of gas. The only problem we had here was the lack of electricity to power the pumps that fill the tankers up to ditribute the gas. It was not a supply problem but a distribution prolem and it was VERY short lived. Look I live and work here. There are no long lines. There is not a huge amount of "No Gas" signs here. I promise that if there was I would tell you so. Now will prices go up yes. That's for sure. But we DO NOT have a shortage. Believe me, I have driven around a lot of this area since Katrina hit and I have gotten gas with no difficulty.
