5$ a Gallon?
Hurricane Rita might be poised to do for gas prices what Hurricane Katrina started.
Remember when gas spiked to $3-plus a gallon after Hurricane Katrina? By this time next week, that could seem like the good old days.This is certainly going to be a hot topic for people to grouse about, especially in a neighborhood where every other driveway holds a luxury car that rides on the highest-octane stuff.
..."We could be looking at gasoline lines and $4 gas, maybe even $5 gas, if this thing does the worst it could do," said energy analyst Peter Beutel of Cameron Hanover. "This storm is in the wrong place. And it's absolutely at the wrong time," said Beutel.
