Riddle me this Batmam: How come a hurricane in Louisiana YESTERDAY
makes pump prices rise today? Does it mean that the gasoline that is

Our Threat Meter is simple. The higher the price of gas goes, the more
of a threat to our way of life shows its face ...
Sorry for the length. Had to get it off my chest. (had to glue the leg)
