I watched an interesting news story over the web regarding how petrol prices varied across the US as the effects of hurricane Katrina registered on the forecourt.
Katrina damaged eight refineries on the Gulf coast. The state of California is looking into price gouging allegations against the oil companies and there is pressure being brought on the Governator to bring in emergency laws to protect their constitutional right to dirt cheap gas prices.
