Katrina

Well, unless you have been living in a hole, you know what is going on. Here is one interesting way to donate, and also the Red Cross and other organizations. I have a few friends who's families have lost everything and are going to have to restart.


In other news, don't always trust your caller id. I got a phone call from my best friend, so when I answered my cell phone I answered "yes dear?" SGT L, this is SSG W. OOOOOOOOOPS! hehehe, I was quite embarressed by that. He had been borrowing her cell phone:)
Gas prices havel just hit insane here, up to $2.88 in places. Here on post they have left it down at $2.34 but they are out of Regular unleaded. SCARY. My drive to Miami tomorrow is going to be interesting to say the least.

There was one place here that was briefly 3.49. The state attorney general is warning against price gouging, but we also have stations running out of gas.

BE.CAREFUL!

Sigh. Gas in Chicago has been between $2.80 and $3.00 for at least two weeks.

89 unleaded = ARM
Mid-grade unleaded= LEG
Super uneaded= A--

Carol,

Completely cruel of your boss to let you go on like that!

Here in New Zealand the price for a US Gallon works out at about $4.12US (and there's been no hurricane here).

I think oil companies have been shielding the US from rising oil prices for a long time but now Katrina has given them an excuse to start charging you what the rest of us have been paying for some time.

Just be thankful you're only around $2.88 (although American cars are bigger).
