TS Gustav taking aim at Gulf Coast

Posted By on August 28, 2008

Currently a tropical storm packing peak winds of 60 knots, Gustav the killer storm in the Caribbean looks to be taking aim at the Gulf Coast of the United States. Cities like New Orleans are not taking chances and are getting early information and preparations in place. The predictions are for Gustav to strengthen and land sometime near Labor Day. Oil prices are already heading up and I just received a text message from local filling station chain that their gasoline prices are going up at noon today (Thursday). No doubt oil traders will not going into the holiday weekend ‘long’ on oil.
