For those of us who are in the US, you've probably noticed gas prices skyrocketing recently. With the Iraq situation and now with the refineries in the Gulf Coast shut down after Katrina, is it deja vu again when people waited in line for hours to get gas some 25 years ago?
Locally here in the East Coast, gas price went up 25% within the past 1-2 days. It's gone up about 50% in the past month or two.
Granted that gas prices are still relatively inexpensive here in the US compared to Europe and the rest of the world, it's still getting pretty expensive for those of us who have a long commute everyday.
