CNN said right now that because of major interstates flooded, gasoline transportation trucks won't be able to distribute across the nation. Does this really mean we face the consequences for something we can't control?

I noticed it jumped 12 cents in one day and the hurricane had not even hit Texas yet!

Looks like we're looking at the return of 4.30$ a gallon

Not even Sam's Club premium gas membership will be a bargain anymore

If the foreman at a refinery stubs his toe gas prices will jump nationwide. Any excuse.

Gas Prices are going to soar but because of Democrats, not Texas. They raised the gas tax 12 cents a gallon plus Cap & Trade will really raise it up.

In CA why, they pump their own oil and have their own refineries, so TX won't directly impact them. On the other hand it is CA so expect an increase.

No but it will soar because of the policies of liberal tax and spend politicians though.

Prices haven't changed in NM, right next door to TX, so far. We'll see. Doesn't CA produce oil? Kern Co.?

Yes, expect a temporary price increase that will probably last 2-4 weeks. It's entirely possible that for a week or two, super expensive, low emission California produced gasoline will be cheaper than regular Texas gasoline. Because of that, California gas might get shipped to Arizona and/or Nevada.

If you need to fill up, buy the minimum. In two to three weeks, prices will be going down.

I'd walk to work today if it weren't so damn hot. Oh well. I tank up about once a month if I drive to work every day. 12 gallons.
