I was at work, last night, when Hurricane Ike came ashore, in Texas. Of course we couldnt see much, on the TV, because it was dark, but what we could see looked pretty bad. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Texas, as they weather this awful storm. They said there is already 4 million people without power.
We filled up our gas tank last night, when they announced gas prices, could double after the storm. On my way home, this morning, here where we are, prices are already up 50 cents. On the morning news, they said gas prices are 8 dollars a gallon, in Arkansas, and 5 dollars in many places. They also said gas stations, are running out of gas. I hope this is just a short time thing, and not a long term effect.
