    the world is doom hahhahaha

    the reason why stupid politician don't care abt gas price and if they care they want to push it higher is bcuz governments everywhere are making tons of money from us cuz of the gas tax... if the world strike for a few days and customers like us not filling gas for like a few days or a week possilbe a month that would be sweet...

    How would a gas strike help? gas is something that we all need....ya cant boycott gas.

    New Orleans is going to be buried under water....those levees were designed to withstand against fast moving catagory 3 storms....and theyre saying that the water will rise 15-20 feet over the levees, which would be 20-25 above the city level!!!

    Theyre saying the city could be under water, a disaster area, for WEEKS, if not MONTHS....cuz the water will build up, the pumps wont work right, so theyll have to blow the levees.....water contamination, mega loss of life, etc.

    massive loss of life? is it gonna be that serious?

    this storm is tricky...they closed down schools and everything here since we were in its path, then the storm veered off away from us and it was as sunny as ever...

    anyway, we DEFINITELY will feel the effect of gas, especially those of us near lousiana,

    hopefully there wont be the 4hour+ lines for gas that there was in florida last year

    where you at right now?. Right now i put 15 bucks on the Sentra and it barely hit right under the half tank mark. it just sucks on how high they are right now and how bad they could possibly get in the future.

    Yeah for those who have gas but for those who have diesel its pretty high at about 2.70 a gallon roght now! But down here there is not much to do and you can't go very far so driving is not a high priority unless your like me a drive a lot, but it does not bother me severly.

    Gas is already about 2.70 a gallon here in Fort Myers. Its ridiculous. I'm curious to see how prices will rise, not because of gouging due to the storm, but because the oil companies had to evacuate so many oil rigs in the Gulf. They make up like 1/4 of our oil, or some number to that effect.

    The people staying in the dome really have no place to go. Plus the highways are gridlocked in N.O. even with the roads reversed to be going only one way...OUT. Not to be a smart ass or anything, but I'd much rather ride out a Cat. 5 in a stadium then in my car on the interstate.

    Hurricance Charlie was what, a Cat. 3 when it came through here? This area is still devistated from that over a year later. If this storm does the damage they predict its going to take YEARS to even get the city back up to working order....so much for going to Mardi Gras.

    And just as a final note...even though this storm is intense, I'm not sure if it will be the worst natural disaster ever in the US. Hurricane Camille killed 256 back in the 60's and the Labor Day Hurricane killed over 600 in the Keys back in the 30's. Its still going to be a hell of a storm though.

    Hope the people here whose families are out there stay safe...

    I had to work 12 hours at Sunglass Hut on Friday while the Hurricane was passing over me. Do you know how many people want to buy sunglasses in a Hurricane? Lol...3. I had a lot of time to catch up on my CNN mobile.

    ...I'm a loser.

    Hey, and don't knock the weather channel...Jim Cantori might hear you and come beat you....if he survives this storm...if.

    I think that this one will cause that many deaths....if the storm surges happen like they think they will, the city will be under water for weeks, if not months.
