Still curious

I realize this is pretty damn self-serving (and comparatively trivial), given what the people along the Texas gulf coast are about to experience with Hurricane Rita, but did anyone else jet to the gas station last night or this morning before the price shoots up to $5.00 a gallon? Or was I letting Mr. Newsman scare me?

Judging from the crowds at the gas station this morning, I wasn't the only trying to beat a huge jump at the pump. (Oh, holy $#!+, did I just type that?) And it wasn't just the gas either. Keeping a man from getting his morning coffee (even if it's gas station coffee) is just damn cruel and annoying.
