    "Tropical Storm Isaac could cost you at the pump"

    Count on it. Even if no drilling were affected the petroleum industry...especially in Utah...would use the storm as an excuse to raise prices.

    And, make no mistake, it will somehow be Obamas fault

    Joe: Of course it's Obama's fault. Evrything that happens on his watch is his fault. Isn't that how it works? Everything that happened prior to him was W's fault, (and most of what has happened since, according to his followers). No reason why O can't share the blame for stuff that happens on his watch...

    Grateful for the price increase warning. I'll get right out and fill up before the price goes up the "predicted" ten cents.

    There is even more pressure on the cost of gasoline. Venezuela had a refinery fire and a Motiva refinery in Port Arthur Texas has a lengthy and unexpected shutdown. It may cost 1 billion to repair a mistake in that refinery.

    @Ned
    Right because everyone knows it is the presidents responsibility to control the weather while he is on his "watch."
