Anecdotal evidence is suggesting that a Hurricane Ike-inspired gas panic has started in the southeast. I’m hearing stories of lines at gas stations, and people emailing their relatives to go fill their tanks tonight before the price spikes tomorrow.
If I may indulge in a bit of easy-for-me-to-say advice: Folks, unless you’re on empty, do yourselves a favor an take the Pill of Chillness. The Katrina panic only lasted a few days (although the price spike beneath it did not–can’t help you there). This too shall pass.
