I agree, don't believe everything you hear. This morning when the attacks occured I was on a helicopter enroute to my platform off the coast of Louisiana in the Gulf of Mexico. Immediately upon my landing, the second plane hit the WTC. The next thing I know, the U.S. is a no-fly-zone, including 12 miles off the coast of Louisiana. No aircraft, helicopters included were permitted to fly within 12 miles of the La. coast. Our company aircraft could fly all they wanted to, farther out, but under no circumstances were we to fly within the 12 mile zone. I am currently on an oil and natural gas platform by myself, 33 miles off the coast of La. and I promise that the natural resources that I am producing are moving through piplines to refineries for processing. God bless the people that are involved in this tragedy.
Here in North West Arkansas gas was $1.59 for regular unleaded this morning. I drove to another building for a meeting at 1:30, the station I drove by was at $1.69. By 5:15 when I left the office, $1.99. On headr on the radio that a congressman in MO is going to ask for a Federal investigation to ensure there is no price gouging. I filled up both trucks at Murphys USA at $1.69 a gallon. Bet gas prices will be higher in the morning. :think
Your sources are correct. The four stations I pass on my way home all had limes for a 1/4 mile or more with police dirrecting traffic. I filled my truck with diesel plus two 55 gallon drums this morning for 1.66$.
