Re: Katrina Domino Effect

Gas on the west coast is about $2.99 for regular. I think those of you in the east will see some relief shortly. We have no lines here and no shortgae. I think the reason you do have shortages has, up until now, been mostly because the pipelines bringing gas from east Texas and Louisiana to you were out of commission due to no power. They are back in operation now and will be running closer and closer to normla capacity each day. There is still a reduction in refining capacity and it remains to be seen how much effect that will have. The problems with crude supply, so far, don't mean much because of releases from the Strategic Reserve.
