Highway Robbery (Literally)

A week ago today, I got gas at the country store down the road for $3.45/gallon.

Enter Hurricane Ike (which didn't get within 500 miles of Western North Carolina)...

Today I had to drive to five different places to even find gas - apparently they've all been without since Friday - and it was $4.69/gallon.

Let's hear it for unfettered Capitalism!!!
