I fail to grasp how, despite Texas refineries shutting down due to the Hurricane, how gas has spiked so high basically overnight. Gas has gone up as much as 40-50 cents in a span of fucking hours in some places; At the local Costco gas, prices were raised 40 cents for 87 octane within a 2 hour period. I thankfully filled up the Si before Harvey hit and paid $2.65/gallon; 93 octane is now hovering above $3.60.

And while apparently NJ gets its gas from Texas via pipeline, there is zero fucking logical reason for a HUGE spike in prices like this. Fucking price gouging.........
