    Just now on the news they had a warning that the price of gasoline may spike to $5 or more because of this hurricane just like it did from Katrina because of a pause in production by the refinery and oil digging..... The gulf coast states get the worst of it but that is never good news even for us.

    Its a really tough decision for the emergency officials to make..there and here..when a bad one ever comes our way.

    The Delmarva peninsula (on a crowded weekend) has one of the longest evacuation times on the east coast...36 hours...becuase the traffic modellers believe tourists from DC/balt/Phil will go all the way home when the evacuation order is given (not just to like a shelter in salisbury etc.) and everyone knows there are massive bottlenecks on 404/50 I-95 etc.

    Think about where a hurricane would be 36 hours before it gets NEAR Ocean City...at 15 mph forward speed, thats 500 miles south of here like off Georgia. In other words, when people would have to start evacuating to make it all the way home, the storm is so far away its path is super uncertain...

    Anyone takin this?

    Ok, so the obvious points have been brought up. I understand gas prices will go up. I understand that LA, New O. may get hit. So the real question and concern is will Gustov be a decent ground swell and safe enough to rip on? Just saw a report that be O-Head so anyone else gunna take the risk?

    even if gustav hits to the west of new orleans, the greatest storm surge will be in the Northeast quadrant of the storm, so I'm wondering the influence here....
