Gas prices shot up 50 cents on the East Coast yesterday. The official reason is because the gas pipeline through Louisiana is shut down. After seeing a photo of an oil rig washed nearly ashore, I understand that supply took a hit. But if the main problem is the pipeline, why raise prices now? Labor Day weekend is coming. Higher gas prices will not cause people to cancel their vacation plans at the last minute and preserve our supply of gas. At most, it will enable oil companies to avoid losses if there are any shortages. Happy motoring!
