Are the prices of seafood going way up in local NO restaurants due to the spill?

There was just a story on local New Orleans news about oysters starting to go way up in price. One owner interviewed took oysters completely off the menu but you can have them if you ask at almost double his regular price (ex: small oyster po boy normally around $8.00, now being sold for $16.00) but, so far, no reports of anything else. More fisheries have been told to shut down, so everyone just needs to keep an eye out. Shrimp were still relatively cheap ($3.69/lb) when I was shopping 2 days ago.

I caught a place gouging seafood prices in Baton Rouge a couple weeks ago. They had a notice that seafood was going up because of the oil spill, and the idiots even raised the price of CATFISH. Yeah, not going back there. It was Burbank Grill, for anyone interested.

One good thing is the shrimp come ready to fry. Saves time and money.
